Do both faith traditions treat the subject in the same way? If they vary, why?
Do you have any critiques of how the books were researched or written?
Are the authors convincing in their arguments or are there holes in the logic?

Why did the author write this book at this particular time?
Who is the intended audience and how does that shape the author’s approach?
What is the value of reading these 2 books together?
