The aim of this study is to analyze how two different education books produce christianity and islam. The analyzed books is from 2003 and 2008 and the books are adapted for the last years of primary school. The meaning and translation of words is often a problem and can get the reader wrong understaning of the religion. The analyze include the perspective of this meaning and how the sacred things are described in each religion.The textanalyze is made with different criterias; the context, the pre- understanding and if the text is objectiv is some of the most important. The language is important too. Both books are produced in the occidental context which can be a problem when to describe islam. The religion is not the same here and preconcenptions can occure. When to put islam in an occidential context and describe it will not get an objecive describtion. Both books are focused on information and will get the reader as much data as posible.
