You MUST MUST MUST read the book and cite it. It is very important. The textbook must be your primary source!!!! You can have more sources but the textbook will be the most important one.

(My opinion is that The 3 religions do follow the same God, they just have different ways to worship him. different cultures. different traditions. With the pass of the time the scriptures have been changing, but the God is the same. They also have in common most of the prophets)
