Understanding Christian-Muslim Relations: Past and Present
This book offers a topical investigation into Christian-Muslim relations, highlighting the important need for an improved understanding between the two communities in order develop universal peace and justice.For centuries Christians and Muslims have engaged with each other in a variety of ways, peaceful and otherwise.Today, Christians represent an influential body of opinion that largely perceives Islam, post 9/11, as a threat. Yet Muslims represent approximately one third of the world's population. Improved understanding between Christians and Muslims is a crucial foundation for international peace and for common humanitarian action.

This book aims to investigate Islam's place in the world, Muslim aspirations vis-a-vis non-Muslims and the realities of how Christians perceive Muslims and Muslims Christians. It covers what has been said and written from the seventh to the present century.Each chapter analyses accessible texts from key thinkers and commentators, broadly split into two camps: confrontational or conciliatory including detailed treatment of Bible and Qur'an. Christian-Muslim relations are set in the wider context of civilizational, geo-political and economic interaction between the Muslim world and the historically Christian West.

Land van mensen, confrontaties en dialoog over het Beloofde Land onder christenen, joden en moslims
Israel en de bezette gebieden zijn voor Palestijnse christenen ook hun vaderland. Met deze boodschap werden Nederlandse kerken in 2009 geconfronteerd toen in dat jaar het Kairosdocument van Palestijnse theologen verscheen. Christen-zionisten hielden bij de presentatie in de Domkerk een tegendemonstratie met Israelische vlaggen.

Onder protestanten leek de erkenning van het joodse eigendomsrecht op `het Land` altijd sterk. Maar binnen de PKN is men het niet meer zo eens. De katholieke kerk lijkt zijn bezwaren tegen de staat Israel pas laat opzij te hebben gezet. Maar de discussies gaan toch door.

In het jodendom is er altijd verschillend over 'het Land' gedacht. Een Likud politicus liet in 2009 weten dat hij de joodse tempel wil herbouwen. Maar er zijn ook orthodoxe joden die de staat afwijzen en regelmatig demonstreren met Palestijnse vlaggen. Er zijn Israelische 'Rabbis for Human Rights', maar ook 'bevrijdingstheologen' die de joodse diaspora verkiezen boven Israel. Ondertussen vrezen moslims voor hun heiligdommen op de Tempelberg. De PLO pleit voor een seculier bewind over alle heilige plaatsen, maar Hamas en Hezbollah voeren een 'heilige oorlog' tegen Israel dat heilige grond 'van moslims' bezet houdt. Moslim bevrijdingstheologen verwerpen echter alle religieuze claims op 'het Land'.

Land van mensen biedt een ordening van de verschillen en geschillen binnen de drie religies over 'het Land' en stelt de vraag naar de mogelijkheden voor een dialoog.

Dubbele dialoog. Vrouwen en mannen in interreligieuze ontmoetingen
Nu het religieuze landschap in Nederland steeds bonter wordt, lijkt de noodzaak voor het houden van dialoog tussen de diverse groepen prangender dan ooit. Kinderen van diverse culturele en religieuze achtergronden komen elkaar op school tegen. Het aantal gemengde huwelijken groeit met sprongen. Grote groepen zijn op zoek naar zin en vullen zelf hun religieuze kaart in. Er ontstaan nieuwe vormen van 'wij' en via allerlei activiteiten proberen we elkaar beter te leren kennen.
Religie blijft ons uitgangspunt voor veel van de dialoogactiviteiten, hoewel die in het verleden veel op een dood spoor geraakten. Mannen voeren vaak de hoofdtoon. Wat vrouwen doen en zeggen verdwijnt in het achtergrondgeruis. Daardoor verliezen veel van dit soort activiteiten aan kracht en invloed; soms worden ze zelfs als totaal overbodig gezien.
Dit boek probeert de mechanismen naar boven te halen die ertoe leiden dat vrouwen binnen de dialoog onzichtbaar en ongehoord lijken te blijven, terwijl ze vaak een groot deel van het voetwerk doen. Ligt het aan de religieuze hokjes, die van gender, of zijn er andere krachten die hen op de achtergrond houden?
De schrijvers, vrouwen en mannen, gaan er vanuit dat in het huidige Nederland interreligieuze ontmoetingen nog steeds van groot belang zijn voor het vormen van nieuwe maatschappelijke middenvelden. En dat deze activiteiten sterker worden en aan effectiviteit winnen als vrouwen en mannen vanuit hun visies en expertise meedoen.

Brown, B.A.
Noahs other Son, Bridging the Gap Between the Bible and the Quran
In this book, the author very simply proceeds through his book to help Jews and Christians understand the role that several biblical figures from their own traditions play in Islam.In his compelling book, pastor Brian Brown engages in conciliatory dialogue with Christians, Jews, and Muslims in an attempt to recover the beauty and value of Islam for the West.

Noah's Other Son helps Jews and Christians understand the role that several biblical figures from their own traditions play in Islam. Do Christians know, for example, that Jesus in the Qur'an was speaking about Muhammad when he promised to send an Advocate or Comforter? Who would have imagined that Noah had a rebellious son who refused to get on the ark and drowned?

There has never been a greater potential for misunderstanding between the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths, as the treacherous situation in which the world now finds itself. Brian Brown examines scriptural characters as a way of seeing Islam in its pure light, without the distortions of history or individual failings. "Noah's Other Son" provides an excellent starting point for Christian-Jewish-Muslim dialogue.

Towards a Jewish-Christian-Muslim Theology
Towards a Jewish-Christian-Muslim Theology delineates the ways that Christianity, Islam, and the Jewish tradition have moved towards each another over the centuries and points to new pathways for contemporary theological work.

Burrel explores the development of the three Abrahamic traditions, brilliantly showing the way in which they have struggled with similar issues over the centuries. Burrel shows how the approach of each tradition can be used comparatively by the other traditions to illuminate and develop their own thinking

Written by a renowned writer in philosophical theology, widely acclaimed for his comparative thinking on Jewish and Islamic theology* A very timely book which moves forward the discussion at a period of intense inter-religious dialogue

Byrne, M.
The Names of God in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. A Basis for Interfaith Dialogue
This title presents an exploration of divine designations in the Hebrew Bible, New Testament and Qur'an, using comparative theology to ascertain if there is common language for interfaith dialogue.

This book offers a welcome solution to the growing need for a common language in interfaith dialogue; particularly between the three Abrahamic faiths in our modern pluralistic society. The book suggests that the names given to God in the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and the Qur'an, could be the very foundations and building blocks for a common language between the Jewish, Christian and Islamic faiths. On both a formal interfaith level, as well as between everyday followers of each doctrine, this book facilitates a more fruitful and universal understanding and respect of each sacred text; exploring both the commonalities and differences between the each theology and their individual receptions.

In a practical application of the methodologies of comparative theology, Maire Byrne shows that the titles, names and epithets given to God in the sacred texts of Judaism, Christianity and Islam contribute towards similar images of God in each case, and elucidates the importance of this for providing a viable starting point for interfaith dialogue.

Cohen, R.
Saving the Holy Sepulchre: How Rival Christians Came Together to Rescue Their Holiest Shrine
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the mother of all the churches, erected on the spot where Jesus Christ was crucified and rose from the dead and where every Christian was born. In 1927, Jerusalem was struck by a powerful earthquake, and for decades this venerable structure stood perilously close to collapse.

In Saving the Holy Sepulchre , Raymond Cohen tells the engaging story of how three major Christian traditions - Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Armenian Orthodox - each with jealously guarded claims to the church, struggled to restore one of the great shrines of civilization.

It almost didn't happen. For centuries the communities had lived together in an atmosphere of tension and mistrust based on differences of theology, language, and culture-differences so sharp that fistfights were not uncommon. And the project of restoration became embroiled in interchurch disputes and great power politics. Cohen shows how the repair of the dilapidated basilica was the result of unprecedented cooperation among the three churches. It was tortuous at times - one French monk involved in the restoration exclaimed: "I can't take any more of it. Latins - Armenians - Greeks - it is too much. I am bent over double." But thanks to the dedicated efforts of a cast of kings, popes, patriarchs, governors, monks, and architects, the deadlock was eventually broken on the eve of Pope Paul VI's historic pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1964.

Today, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is in better shape than it has been for five hundred years. Light and space have returned to its ancient halls, and its walls and pillars stand sound and true. Saving the Holy Sepulchre is the riveting story of how Christians put aside centuries of division to make this dream a reality.

Christ Jesus and the Jewish People Today. New Explorations of Theological Interrelationships
Christ Jesus and the Jewish People Today explores the historical, biblical, christological, trinitarian, and ecclesiological dimensions of this crucial question: How might we Christians in our time reaffirm our faith claim that Jesus Christ is the Savior of all humanity, even as we affirm the Jewish peoples covenantal life with God? This volume is the result of a transatlantic, interfaith collaboration among Boston College, Catholic Theological Union, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Lund University, Pontifical Gregorian University, and Saint Josephs University. This book opens up new vistas after forty-five years of Catholic-Jewish reconciliation. Not comfortable with resting on prior accomplishments, this work is a bold step forward in Catholic searching for a closer theological bond to Judaism without giving up the differences between the two faiths.

Van rozenkassen tot dialoog - 50 jaar Nes Ammim
Met deze bundel hebben wij niet de pretentie de geschiedenis van vijftig jaar Nes Ammim in kaart te brengen. De titel van het boek heeft de vraag als achtergrond die bestuursleden van Nes Ammim Nederland, meer dan tien jaar na het beeindigen van de rozenkassen, nog vaak te horen krijgen: 'Wat doen jullie daar nu eigenlijk sinds die rozenkwekerij is opgedoekt?' Wij realiseerden ons dat men zich bij het kweken van rozen gemakkelijker iets kan voorstellen dan bij het opzetten van studieprogramma's en dialoogprojecten. Vandaar de titel van het boek Van Rozenkassen tot dialoog.

Het Christendom en de wereldreligies: Dialoog en confrontatie
Nu van 26,50 voor 14,90

Na een lange periode van kerkverlating, ontzuiling en steeds striktere scheiding tussen kerk en staat, leek religie op weg om uit West-Europa te verdwijnen. Maar groeiende interesse in spiritualiteit, import van godsdiensten door immigratie en heftige internationale conflicten met een godsdienstige achtergrond keerden het tij. Nu haasten religieuze kopstukken zich om de vreedzame bedoelingen van hun eigen religie te benadrukken en proberen politieke leiders om een begripvolle omgang tussen culturen en religies te bevorderen. In Nederland zijn inmiddels alle wereldreligies actief en ze gaan op nieuwe manieren via ongekend open ontmoetingen met elkaar om. Maar ook hier spelen conflicten.

Waar eerdere studies interacties tussen religies vooral beschrijven en focussen op afzonderlijke thema's als geweld of de verhouding tussen kerk en staat, biedt dit boek een echte insiders view: het laat zien hoe binnen afzonderlijke religies - en niet alleen in het christendom - maatstaven zijn aangelegd om andere godsdiensten te beoordelen. Het geeft een overzicht van de dialoog en de confrontaties die sinds 1960 tussen christendom, jodendom, islam, hindoeisme en boeddhisme hebben plaatsgevonden. Tien specialisten vertellen, ieder op hun eigen terrein, hoe deze confrontaties zijn ontstaan en hoe men hiermee theologisch, spiritueel en politiek constructief om kan gaan. Daarbij gaan zij in op vele bijzondere en wezenlijke aspecten in de dialoog. Ook wordt een kritische kijk geboden op de mystiek, als een door velen veronderstelde oplossing voor de verschillen tussen de religies.

Het christendom en de wereldreligies is van belang voor wie op een of andere wijze betrokken is bij ontmoetingen met andersgelovigen en de achtergronden wil leren kennen van de dialoog tussen religies en de wereldwijd toenemende botsingen.

Womens Voices. New Perspectives for the Christian-Jewish Dialogue
This book is the first of its kind to specifically look at Jewish-Christian women in dialogue together on a range of issues other than the feminist one. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the subject , consists of two voices engaging in discussion, and ends with a thorough list of further reading to point the interested reader in the right direction to find out more. It looks at the impact of the dialogue on these women's spiritual journeys, and also looks at key critical issues such as the impact of the Holocaust on the women's faith and theology: the figure of the Messiah in both traditions -touching on the wider christological issues which separate the two faiths. The way the text is read is examined and, finally, the book looks to the future and asks what the key concerns and issues wil be for them and the next generation of Jewish and Christian women.

Griffith, S.H.
The Church in the Shadow of the Mosque: Christians and Muslims in the World of Islam
Amid so much twenty-first-century talk of a 'Christian-Muslim divide' - and the attendant controversy in some Western countries over policies toward minority Muslim communities - a historical fact has gone unnoticed: for more than four hundred years beginning in the mid-seventh century, some 50 per cent of the world's Christians lived and worshipped under Muslim rule. Just who were the Christians in the Arabic-speaking milieu of Mohammed and the Qur'an?

The Church in the Shadow of the Mosque is the first book-length discussion in English of the cultural and intellectual life of such Christians indigenous to the Islamic world. Sidney Griffith offers an engaging overview of their initial reactions to the religious challenges they faced, the development of a new mode of presenting Christian doctrine as liturgical texts in their own languages gave way to Arabic, the Christian role in the philosophical life of early Baghdad, and the maturing of distinctive Oriental Christian denominations in this context.

Offering a fuller understanding of the rise of Islam in its early years from the perspective of contemporary non-Muslims, this book reminds us that there is much to learn from the works of people who seriously engaged Muslims in their own world so long ago.

Just Wars, Holy Wars, and Jihads. Christian, Jewish, Muslim Encounters and Exchanges
Just Wars, Holy Wars, and Jihads explores the development of ideas of morally justified or legitimate war in Western and Islamic civilizations. Historically, these ideas have been grouped under three labels: just war, holy war, and jihad. A large body of literature exists exploring the development of just war and holy war concepts in the West and of jihad in Islam. Yet, to date, no book has investigated in depth the historical interaction between Western notions of just or holy war and Muslim definitions of jihad. This book is a major contribution to the comparative study of the ethics of war and peace in the West and Islam. Its twenty chapters explore two broad questions:

1. What historical evidence exists that Christian and Jewish writers on just war and holy war and Muslim writers on jihad knew of the other tradition?

2. What is the evidence in treatises, chronicles, speeches, ballads, and other historical records, or in practice, that either tradition influenced the other?

Heck, P.L.
Common Ground; Islam, Christianity, and Religious Pluralism
Christian-Muslim interaction is a reality today in all corners of the globe, but while many celebrate the commonality of these traditions, significant differences remain. If these religions cannot be easily reconciled, can we perhaps view them through a single albeit refractive lens? This is the approach Paul Heck takes in "Common Ground": to undertake a study of religious pluralism as a theological and social reality, and to approach the two religions in tandem as part of a broader discussion on the nature of the good society. Rather than compare Christianity and Islam as two species of faith, religious pluralism offers a prism through which a society as a whole - secular and religious alike - can consider its core beliefs and values. Christianity and Islam are not merely identities that designate particular communities, but reference points that all can comprehend and discuss knowledgeably. This analysis of how Islam and Christianity understand theology, ethics, and politics - specifically democracy and human rights - offers a way for that discussion to move forward.

Controversies in Interreligious Dialogue and the Theology of Religions
This book provides an introduction to the current state of the field for those new to interreligious dialogue and the theology of religions, as well as providing insights and new concepts that will be of interest to specialists.

In particular, the current deadlock between pluralist and particularist approaches is re-imagined, and a strong argument for radical openness to the religious Other is advanced, based upon the resources of the Christian heritage. This book draws inspiration from many sources including intercultural theology, feminist theologies of religions, comparative theology, postcolonial identity theory, scholarly debates on the nature of religion, and biblical concepts of hospitality to outline its new approach.

It concludes that we must seek mutual fulfilment with religious Others while maintaining Christian integrity. It also addresses the problems this involves when seeking ethical partnership across religious boundaries. No easy answers are given, however, a vision for radical openness based on Jesus' example, the Christian heritage, and contemporary scholarship is endorsed.

Learned Ignorance. Intellectual Humility among Jews, Christians, and Muslims
Constructive interreligious dialogue is only a recent phenomenon. Until the nineteenth century, most dialogue among believers was carried on as a debate aimed either to disprove the claims of the other, or to convert the other to one's own tradition. At the end of the nineteenth century, Protestant Christian missionaries of different denominations had created such a cacophony amongst themselves in the mission fields that they decided that it would be best if they could begin to overcome their own differences instead of confusing and even scandalizing the people whom they were trying to convert. By the middle of the twentieth century, the horrors of the Holocaust compelled Christians, especially mainline Protestants and Catholics, to enter into a serious dialogue with Jews, one of the consequences of which was the removal of claims by Christians to have replaced Judaism, and revising text books that communicated that message to Christian believers. Now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, many branches of Christianity, not least the Catholic Church, are engaged in a world-wide constructive dialogue with Muslims, made all the more necessary by the terrorist attacks of September 11. In these new conversations, Muslim religious leaders took an important initiative when they sent their document,"A Common Word Between Us," to all Christians in the West. The Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies brought together an international group of sixteen Jewish, Catholic, and Muslim scholars to carry on an important theological exploration of the theme of "learned ignorance."

Messianisme en eindtijdverwachting bij joden en christenen
In oktober 1999 werd door Deputaten Kerk & Israel van de Christelijke Gereformeerde Kerken een studiereis naar Israel georganiseerd rond het thema 'De volheid des tijds en de vervulling der tijden: de eschatologie'. Tijdens de voorbereidingsbijeenkomsten in Nederland werden lezingen gegeven over verschillende aspecten van dit thema. Vijf jaar later, in oktober 2004, werd aan de Theologische Universiteit Kampen (Koornmarkt) een symposium gehouden over 'messiasverwachting bij joden en christenen: bron van vreugde en ellende', met lezingen en workshops.

Beide thema's zijn zeer nauw met elkaar verweven en vloeien zelfs in elkaar over. In de bijbel staat de verwachting van de komst van de messias steeds in het kader van de hoop op Gods Rijk, een wereld van vrede en gerechtigheid. Deze hoop krijgt - afhankelijk van tijd en politieke context - op verschillende manieren gestalte in een messiaanse droom. Soms is deze verwachting sluimerend, dan weer vlamt zij op tot een duidelijk omschreven beeld van een messiaanse redder, die spoedig zal komen of zelfs al gekomen is.

Verhalen bij de bron. Basisteksten Bijbel en Koran in gewoon Nederlands. Verschillen en overeenkomsten met uileg en achtergrondinformatie.
In het publieke debat van vandaag wordt regelmatig verwezen naar de Bijbel en de Koran. Terwijl deze boeken voor miljoenen joden, christenen en moslims dé inspiratiebron voor hun leven zijn, is de inhoud ervan bij steeds meer mensen onbekend. Daardoor wordt er vaak langs elkaar heen gepraat.

Lena Hofland behandelt in dit boek basisteksten van de Bijbel en de Koran. Zij heeft deze hertaald, verklaard en van achtergrondinformatie voorzien. Ondanks duidelijke verschillen blijkt er verrassend veel verwantschap te bestaan. Een boek voor mensen die weinig weten van de Bijbel en de Koran, maar die wel zinvol aan het multiculturele debat willen deelnemen.

Humanity: Texts and Contexts. Christian and Muslim Perspectives
Humanity: Texts and Contexts is a record of the 2007 Singapore "Building Bridges" seminar, an annual dialogue between Muslim and Christian scholars cosponsored by Georgetown University and the Archbishop of Canterbury.

This volume explores three central questions: What does it mean to be human? What is the significance of the diversity that is evident among human beings? And what are the challenges that humans face living within the natural world? A distinguished group of scholars focuses on the theological responses to each of these questions, drawing on the wealth of material found in both Christian and Islamic scriptures. Part one lays out the three issues of human identity, difference, and guardianship. Part two explores scriptural texts side by side, pairing Christian and Islamic scholars who examine such themes as human dignity, human alienation, human destiny, humanity and gender, humanity and diversity, and humanity and the environment. In addition to contributions from an international cast of outstanding scholars, the book includes an afterword by Archbishop Rowan Williams.

An Introduction to Jewish-Christian Relations
Relations between Christians and Jews over the past two thousand years have been characterised to a great extent by mutual distrust and by Christian discrimination and violence against Jews.

In recent decades, however, a new spirit of dialogue has been emerging, beginning with an awakening among Christians of the Jewish origins of Christianity, and encouraging scholars of both traditions to work together. An Introduction to Jewish-Christian Relations sheds fresh light on this ongoing interfaith encounter, exploring key writings and themes in Jewish-Christian history, from the Jewish context of the New Testament to major events of modern times, including the rise of ecumenism, the horrors of the Holocaust, and the creation of the state of Israel.

This accessible theological and historical study also touches on numerous related areas such as Jewish and interfaith studies, philosophy, sociology, cultural studies, international relations and the political sciences.

Een blok aan het been? Gereformeerde mannenbroeders in debat over de islam
Godsdienst of ideologie?
Acceptatie of verwerping?
Helderheid of verlegenheid?
Voor of tegen?

In de gereformeerde wereld van eind 19e, begin 20e eeuw liggen aanzetten voor het huidige debat over de islam. Het islamdebat vandaag kent zijn voorgangers. De auteur neemt ons mee naar de gedachten en inzichten van Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) en Herman Bavinck (1854-1921), gereformeerde theologen die ook politiek actief waren. Beide dachten echter niet gelijk over de islam; hun waardering was behoorlijk verschillend. Boeiend ook voor nu, zeker als men zich realiseert dat in hun tijd Nederland met zijn kolonie Nederlands Indië na Groot-Brittannië het grootste land ter wereld was. Het tegen van Kuyper naast de (voorzichtige) acceptatie van Bavinck: lijnen naar nu laten zich trekken.

Kogan, M.S.
Opening the Covenant. A Jewish Theology of Christianity
The Vatican II Council of 1965 signaled a new era in the relationship of the Jewish and Christian faiths. Determined to free the Church of the anti-Jewish polemic which led to such widespread suffering of the innocent, Catholic authorities completely revised their conceptions of Jews and Judaism.

Soon, many mainstream Protestant churches also issued a series of official statements that affirm the eternal nature of God's ancient covenant with Israel. An entirely new category of theology emerged as part of the developing Jewish-Christian dialogue, and gradually Jewish theologians began to respond. Opening The Covenant represents a significant advance in Jewish thinking about Christianity. Michael Kogan delves deeply into the theologies of the two faiths to locate precise points of difference and convergence. He sees Christianity as the breaking open of the original Covenant to include gentile peoples. God has brought this about, says Kogan, through the work of Jesus and his interpreters. If Christianity is a divinely inspired movement, then Judaism must reevaluate its truth-claims. This will in no way compromise the truth of Judaism itself but will cause Jews to understand their own faith more fully by locating it in the larger context of God's universal redemptive plan. Kogan calls for each tradition to receive the wisdom of the other as a means of self-understanding. Once each faith is freed to find God's purpose in the other, the way will be open to a liberating pluralism in which Jews and Christians come to see each other as Israelite siblings sharing a universal role as God's witnesses, the builders of God's Kingdom on earth. Neither faith can do this world-redemptive work alone. Kogan argues that an affirmation of one's own religion can still provide space for the truth of the "other," and presents a theory of multiple revelations of truth flowing from the one God of all.

Lassner, J.
Jews, Christians, and the Abode of Islam. Modern Scholarship, Medieval Realities
In Jews, Christians, and the Abode of Islam, Jacob Lassner examines the triangular relationship that during the Middle Ages defined - and continues to define today - the political and cultural interaction among the three Abrahamic faiths.

Lassner looks closely at the debates occasioned by modern Western scholarship on Islam to throw new light on the social and political status of medieval Jews and Christians in various Islamic lands from the seventh to the thirteenth centuries. Utilizing a vast array of primary sources, Lassner balances the rhetoric of literary and legal texts from the Middle Ages with other, newly published medieval sources, describing life as it was actually lived among the three faith communities. The author shows just what medieval Muslims meant when they spoke of tolerance, and how that abstract concept played out at different times and places in the real world of Christian and Jewish communities under Islamic rule.

Finally, he considers what a more informed picture of the relationship among the Abrahamic faiths in the medieval Islamic world might mean for modern scholarship on medieval Islamic civilization and, not the least, for the highly contentious global environment of today.

Images of Jesus Christ in Islam
This title offers a comprehensive and contemporary exploration of the role of Jesus in both Islam and Christianity and issues of dialogue in Christian-Muslim relations. "Images of Jesus Christ in Islam 2nd Edition" provides a general introduction to the question of Jesus Christ in Islam and a dialogical discussion of this issues' importance for Christian-Muslim relations.

Oddbjorn Leirvik provides a comprehensive introduction to a breadth of Muslim traditions through an examination of interpretations of Jesus throughout history, whilst also examining historic tensions between Islam and Christianity. This book's distinctive contribution lies in its dialogical perspective in the perennial area of interest of Islam and Christian-Muslim relations.

Lobel, D.
A Sufi-Jewish Dialogue
Written in Judeo-Arabic in eleventh-century Muslim Spain but quickly translated into Hebrew, Bahya Ibn Paquda's Duties of the Heart is a profound guidebook of Jewish spirituality that has enjoyed tremendous popularity and influence to the present day. Readers who know the book primarily in its Hebrew version have likely lost sight of the work's original Arabic context and its immersion in Islamic mystical literature. In A Sufi-Jewish Dialogue, Diana Lobel explores the full extent to which Duties of the Heart marks the flowering of the "Jewish-Arab symbiosis," the interpenetration of Islamic and Jewish civilizations.

Lobel reveals Bahya as a maverick who integrates abstract negative theology, devotion to the inner life, and an intimate relationship with a personal God. Bahya emerges from her analysis as a figure so steeped in Islamic traditions that an Arabic reader could easily think he was a Muslim, yet the traditional Jewish seeker has always looked to him as a fountainhead of Jewish devotion.

Indeed, Bahya represents a genuine bridge between religious cultures. He brings together, as well, a rationalist, philosophical approach and a strain of Sufi mysticism, paving the way for the integration of philosophy and spirituality in the thought of Moses Maimonides. A Sufi-Jewish Dialogue is the first scholarly book in English about a tremendously influential work of medieval Jewish thought and will be of interest to readers working in comparative literature, philosophy, and religious studies, particularly as reflected in the interplay of the civilizations of the Middle East. Readers will discover an extraordinary time when Jewish, Christian, and Islamic thinkers participated in a common spiritual quest, across traditions and cultural boundaries.

Magonet, J.
Talking to the Other. Jewish Interfaith Dialogue with Christians and Muslims
Suicide killings - both in America and Israel - have focused world attention on international terrorism. The involvement of people claiming that their Islamic faith justified murderous suicide action has intensified the demonization of Islam in the West, and in turn highlighted the need to understand and relate to Muslims in all their diversity. Rabbi Jonathan Magonet has long been engaged in interfaith dialogue, and in this book he explores the issues that arise with such an encounter and challenges the Jewish community to broaden its commitment to interfaith dialogue in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Markham, I. S.
Engaging with Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. A Model of Interfaith Dialogue
Too often interfaith dialogue is generic and unfocused. Often it involves 'liberals' from each tradition coming together to criticize the 'conservatives' in their own traditions. This book provides a model for interfaith dialogue that challenges very directly the 'dialogue industry'. This book involves a Christian theologian in deep conversation with a Muslim theologian. Bediuzzaman Said Nursi (1877-1960) was born at the end of the Ottoman Empire and lived through the emergence of an aggressive secular state. He had to think through, in remarkably creative ways, the challenge of faith within a secular environment, the relationship of faith and politics, and the implications and challenge of diversity and difference. His entire project is captured in his magnum opus "The Risale-i Nur". In the first eight chapters of this book, we engage closely with the thought of Nursi and tease out insights that Christians can learn from and accommodate. Having established the method, the second section of the book examines the precise implications for the interfaith movement. The problem with the interfaith movement is that it is an act of western cultural imperialism - they are taking the individualist assumptions of modern America and imposing them on the conversation. The problems with John Hick's and Leonard Swidler's approach are exposed. Moving out from Islam, the book then demonstrates how the model of Interfaith changes when Christians are in conversation with Hinduism in India. A new set of Dialogue Ten Commandments are suggested. The book concludes with an appeal for a commitment to include and reach the 'conservatives' in the major religious traditions.

Geloven in de dialoog
Hoe staat het met de joods-christelijke dialoog in Nederland? Welke vormen hebben zich ontwikkeld, welke inhoudelijke vragen zijn momenteel aan de orde, welke wegen en mogelijkheden dienen zich aan voor de toekomst?

Dit boek wil vanuit verschillende invalshoeken antwoord geven op deze vragen. Dit boek komt uit op een beslissend moment voor de interreligieuze dialoog in Nederland. Na het aanvankelijke enthousiasme voor de dialoog in de tachtiger en negentiger jaren zijn kerk en synagoge nu vooral met zichzelf bezig. Confessionele vormen van institutionele religiositeit zijn daarbij meer bepalend geworden. Niettemin is tegelijk vast te stellen dat de dialoog niet is verdwenen. De joods-christelijke dialoog is geen modeverschijnsel gebleken maar ze heeft zich bewezen als een vast onderdeel van het kerkelijke en synagogale bedrijf. Wel zal ze zich moeten heroriënteren op haar bekentenis en op haar taak, binnen een multireligieuze en veranderende Nederlandse samenleving. Van belang daarbij is de bezinning op zowel de religieuze identiteit als op de maatschappelijke vraagstukken. De studies laten zien dat een dialogische praxis noodzakelijk is willen jodendom en christendom, vanuit hun tradities, bijdragen aan de samenleving en het publieke debat. De drie thematische blokken van dit boek weerspiegelen deze agenda: dialoog en religieuze identiteit, Land en staat Israel, en perspectieven in de dialoog. Het initiatief tot dit boek komt voort uit een gezelschap van joodse en christelijke denkers die actief zijn binnen Sha'ar (Hebreeuws voor 'poort'), de denktank binnen het OJEC (Overlegorgaan van Joden christenen in Nederland). Aan het OJEC zijn o.a. verbonden: de Protestantse Kerk (PKN), de Rooms-Katholieke Kerk en de joodse kerkgenootschappen.

Leven in babelse tijden, de noodzaak van een interreligieuze dialoog
Is de veelheid van religies en van godsdienstige en levensbeschouwelijke overtuigingen een vloek of een zegen? Zijn de verschillende religies compatibel met elkaar? Hoe kunnen gelovigen zich staande houden temidden van deze verscheidenheid zonder de particulariteit van het eigen geloof te verliezen? Welke argumenten zijn er voor of tegen de interreligieuze dialoog?

In dit boek maakt Marianne Moyaert de lezer wegwijs in het actuele debat over de (on-)mogelijkheid van een werkelijke ontmoeting tussen de verschillende religies. De religieuze pluraliteit daagt gelovigen van alle godsdiensten ter wereld uit om grondig na te denken over hun eigen identiteit.

Mudge, L.S.
The Gift of Responsibility, the Promise of Dialogue among Chistians, Jews, and Muslims
This book argues that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, locked as they have been over the centuries in many kinds of mutual enmity and violence, now need to join resources to resist the destructive economic and political forces now on the loose across the globe, some of which distrust among these faiths has tended to intensify. Such a project requires relational practices among the faiths, all of them based on mutual moral commitments that draw on the respective communities' scriptural traditions of covenantal promise-keeping. That is, each tradition has a gift of responsibility, both to its God and to its people. Mudge wants to plumb the resources of each of these religions and encourage them to be responsible in taking these gifts seriously.Such relational practices are hardly used as resources in interreligious dialogue. Mudge contends that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are called to practice moral hospitality and covenantal humanism in order to foster justice and responsibility in societies around the globe.

Nazir-Ali sets out fundamental guidelines on the role of religion in society and its relationship to nationalism, ideology and political institutions, and examines Christian-Muslim dialogue with particular relationship to the rise of Arab, Indian and Turkish nationalism. Of particular concern is the relationship of religion to law and the justifiability of armed conflict.

Is Religion Killing Us? Violence in the Bible and the Quran
A provocative look at the violent content of 'sacred scripture' and what Jews, Christians, and Muslims must do to re-vision their faiths away from justifying violence. Post 9/11 attention has focused on Islam as a violent religion, but Nelson-Pallmeyer shows that the Bible and the Quran both have ample violence-justifying content to support "holy" and other wars. The challenge, he maintains, is to acknowledge violence in "sacred scripture" and re-vision God's power.

Nispen tot Sevenaer, Ch.S.J. van
Christenen en moslims: Confrontatie of dialoog?
De aanwezigheid van moslims heeft de westerse samenleving een nieuw gelaat gegeven. Moskeeën duiken op in het stadsbeeld, meisjes dragen hun sluier op school. De integratie van moslims verloopt op vele plaatsen moeilijk. Vele moslims stuiten op onbegrip en vooroordelen die de islam met terrorisme verwarren. Is het in dit klimaat mogelijk het gewicht van vooroordelen, misverstanden en wederzijdse verwijten van ons af te wentelen? Hoe kunnen christenen en moslims in een waarachtige dialoog treden?

Dit boek wil de westerse lezer laten kennismaken met een heel andere visie op de islam. Als befaamd islamoloog die reeds meer dan veertig jaar in Egypte woont, heeft Christiaan van Nispen tot Sevenaer S.J. in de spirituele belevingswereld een bevoorrechte ontmoetingsplaats tussen moslims en christenen ontdekt. Deze spiritualiteit is niet iets theoretisch, iets ‘etherisch’, iets dat buiten de gewone werkelijkheid staat. Integendeel, het is een geest waarvan alle aspecten van ons leven zijn doortrokken, het is dagelijks brood voor kunst en cultuur, voor gebed en eredienst.

The essays are also greatly influenced by Augustine, Anselm, Thomas Aquinas, John Calvin and Karl Barth. This book aims to show the respectful engagement that can be conducted on quite specific theological points between Christianity and Judaism.

O`Mahony, A. & E. Loosley (ed.)
Christian Responses to Islam. Muslim-Christian Relations in the Modern World
In the aftermath of 9/11 there has been much talk of a need to engage on a meaningful level with Islam, but where do we begin and what is the right approach?

This book, available in paperback for the first time, looks at case studies from around the world in order to explore how Christian groups, sometimes as minorities and sometimes as the majority, engage with their Muslim neighbours in the search for a peaceful society. Some of the initiatives are politically motivated, others run by Church authorities and a number are community based, but all offer different approaches to a variety of situations that are encountered in Christian-Islamic dialogue.

This is the first time that global strategies for dialogue have been published in one book by a series of leading academics. Whilst previous publications have concentrated on a particular geographical area, usually the Middle East or Europe, this book casts a wider net and considers issues such as the rise of radical Islam in post-Soviet states, Indonesian immigration in Australia and the spread of Islam amongst the Black South Africans after the fall of apartheid. Scholars and all those interested in politics, current affairs, religion or peace studies will find this book essential reading as a guidebook to the state of contemporary Christian-Islamic relations.

Drie vrouwen uit de christelijke, islamitische en joodse religie wisselden informatie uit over de teksten en tradities van hun geloof. Zij spraken over hun geloofsbeleving en over de verschillen en overeenkomsten die zij in hun bronnen tegenkwamen. Dit leverde interessante inzichten en visies op, die ook van belang kunnen zijn voor de gehele multiculturele samenleving in Nederland. In Woord zoekt Woord hebben zij teksten uit de Bijbel, de Koran en de Tanach over dezelfde onderwerpen en personen integraal opgenomen en het geloofsleven in elke religie beschreven.

Peters, F.E
The Children of Abraham. Judaism, Christianity, Islam
F.E. Peters, a scholar without peer in the comparative study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, revisits his pioneering work after twenty-five years. Peters has rethought and thoroughly rewritten his classic "The Children of Abraham" for a new generation of readers-at a time when the understanding of these three religious traditions has taken on a new and critical urgency. He began writing about all three faiths in the 1970s, long before it was fashionable to treat Islam in the context of Judaism and Christianity, or to align all three for a family portrait.In this updated edition, he lays out the similarities and differences of the three religious siblings with great clarity and succinctness and with that same remarkable objectivity that is the hallmark of all the author's work. Peters traces the three faiths from the sixth century B.C., when the Jews returned to Palestine from exile in Babylonia, to the time in the Middle Ages when they approached their present form. He points out that all three faith groups, whom the Muslims themselves refer to as "People of the Book," share much common ground. Most notably, each embraces the practice of worshipping a God who intervenes in history on behalf of His people. The book's text is direct and accessible with thorough and nuanced discussions of each of the three religions. Updated footnotes provide the reader with expert guidance into the highly complex issues that lie between every line of this stunning and timely new edition of "The Children of Abraham".

Jesus and Muhammad are two of the best known and revered figures in history, each with a billion or more global followers. Now, in this intriguing volume, F.E. Peters offers a clear and compelling analysis of the parallel lives of Jesus and Muhammad, the first such in-depth comparison in print. Like a detective, Peters compiles "dossiers" of what we do and do not know about the lives and portraits of these towering figures, drawing on the views of modern historians and the evidence of the Gospels and the Quran.

With erudition and wit, the author nimbly leads the reader through drama and dogma to reveal surprising similarities between the two leaders and their messages. Each had a public career as a semi-successful preacher. Both encountered opposition that threatened their lives and those of their followers. Each left a body of teaching purported to be their very words, with an urgent imperative that all must become believers in the face of the approaching apocalypse. Both are symbols of hope on the one hand and of God's terrible judgment on the other. They are bringers of peace--and the sword.

There is, however, a fundamental difference. Muslims revere Muhammad ibn Abdullah of Mecca as a mortal prophet. Although known as a prophet in his day, the Galilean Jew Jesus was and is believed by his followers to have been the promised Messiah, indeed the son of God. The Quran records revelations received by Muhammad as the messenger of God, whereas the revelations of the Gospels focus on Jesus and the events of his life and death. A lasting contribution to interfaith understanding, Jesus and Muhammad offers lucid, intelligent answers to questions that underlie some of the world's most intractable conflicts.

Peters, F.E.
The Children of Abraham. Judaism, Christianity, Islam
F. E. Peters, a scholar without peer in the comparative study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, revisits his pioneering work after twenty-five years. Peters has rethought and thoroughly rewritten his classic The Children of Abraham for a new generation of readers - at a time when the understanding of these three religious traditions has taken on a new and critical urgency. He began writing about all three faiths in the 1970s, long before it was fashionable to treat Islam in the context of Judaism and Christianity, or to align all three for a family portrait. In this updated edition, he lays out the similarities and differences of the three religious siblings with great clarity and succinctness and with that same remarkable objectivity that is the hallmark of all the author's work. Peters traces the three faiths from the sixth century B.C. when the Jews returned to Palestine from exile in Babylonia, to the time in the Middle Ages when they approached their present form. He points out that all three faith groups, whom the Muslims themselves refer to as "People of the Book," share much common ground. Most notably, each embraces the practice of worshipping a God who intervenes in history on behalf of His people. The book's text is direct and accessible with thorough and nuanced discussions of each of the three religions. Updated footnotes provide the reader with expert guidance into the highly complex issues that lie between every line of this stunning and timely new edition of The Children of Abraham.

The Monotheists: Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Conflict and Competition, Volume II The Words and Will of God
The world's three great monotheistic religions have spent most of their historical careers in conflict or competition with each other. And yet in fact they sprung from the same spiritual roots and have been nurtured in the same historical soil. This book - an extraordinarily comprehensive and approachable comparative introduction to these religions - seeks not so much to demonstrate the truth of this thesis as to illustrate it. Frank Peters, one of the world's foremost experts on the monotheistic faiths, takes Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and after briefly tracing the roots of each, places them side by side to show both their similarities and their differences. "Volume I, The Peoples of God", tells the story of the foundation and formation of the three monotheistic communities, of their visible, historical presence. "Volume II, The Words and Will of God", is devoted to their inner life, the spirit that animates and regulates them. Peters takes us to where these religions live: their scriptures, laws, institutions, and intentions

A Holy People: Jewish and Christian Perspectives on Religious Communal Identity
A Holy People investigates the various ways in which Jews and Christians define their religious identity, people or community, as being holy. Keeping in mind that historical studies can offer food for thought regarding contemporary issues, the study offers a large collection of essays, relating to the biblical, patristic and medieval period and especially to the modern period. The obvious question of many in the modern world as to whether the attribute of the 'holiness' allows for acknowledgement of authentic religion outside the own religious community, deserves an honest answer and well-documented study: too easily the claim of holiness intertwines with claims of power, whether by rivalling groups within the religious community, by groups divided along gender lines, or on the level of territorial claims. It will be of special importance to scholars and general readers interested in an interdisciplinary approach to theology, rabbinics, history, political science, and much more.

Renard
Islam and Christianity
In light of the widespread public perception of incompatibility between Islam and Christianity, this book provides a much-needed straightforward comparison of these two great faith traditions from a broad theological perspective. Award-winning scholar John Renard illuminates the similarities as well as the differences between Islam and Christianity through a clear exploration of four major dimensions - historical, creedal, institutional, and ethical and spiritual. Throughout, this book features comparisons between concrete elements such as creedal statements, prayer texts, and writings from major theologians and mystics. It also includes a glossary of technical theological terms. For western readers in particular, this balanced, authoritative work overturns some common stereotypes about Islam, especially those that have emerged in the decade since September 11, 2001.

Ringwald, C D
A Day Apart. How Jews, Christians and Muslims find Faith, Freedom, and Joy on the Sabbath
The Sabbath is the original feast day, a day of joy and freedom from work, a holy day that allows us to reconnect with God, our fellows and nature. Now, in a compelling blend of journalism, scholarship and personal memoir, Christopher D. Ringwald examines the Sabbath from Creation to the present, weaving together the stories of three families, three religions and three thousand years of history. A Day Apart is the first book to examine the Sabbath in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. A marvelously readable book, it offers a fascinating portrait of the basics of the three Sabbaths - the Muslim Juma on Friday, the Jewish Shabbat on Saturday and the Christian Lord's Day on Sunday - and introduces us to three families, including Ringwald's own, and shows how they observe the holy day and what it means to them. The heart of the book recounts the history of the Sabbath, ranging from the Creation story and Moses on Mount Sinai, to the teachings of Jesus and Muhammad, the impact of the Protestant Reformation and the Industrial Revolution, and the rise of the modern weekend. Ringwald shows that the Sabbath instinct, to observe a special day of withdrawal and repose, is universal. Indeed, all religions and philosophies teach that life is more than toil, that time should be set aside for contemplation, enjoyment and culture.

Joodse volgelingen van Jezus: Een overzicht in 40 vragen en antwoorden
Messiasbelijdende joden staan in de belangstelling. De aandacht voor joden die Jezus als Messias belijden is soms uiterst positief, maar even vaak sterk afwijzend. De vraag die steeds weer opkomt, is wie deze joodse volgelingen van Jezus zijn.

Aan de hand van veertig vragen en antwoorden schetst drs. Kees Jan Rodenburg een helder beeld van verschillende groepen joodse volgelingen van Jezus. Deze publicatie maakt duidelijk dat zij deel uitmaken van de joods-christelijke relatie. De christelijke kerk kan hen daarom niet negeren, maar staat voor de uitdaging joodse volgelingen van Jezus een eigen plaats te geven.

Geen verzoening zonder bekering. Gesprekken over de joodse traditie
Israël staat voortdurend in de belangstelling, zeker bij christenen. Opvallend genoeg is er betrekkelijk weinig aandacht voor de godsdienstige traditie van Israël, het jodendom. In dit boek gaat Kees Jan Rodenburg in gesprek met drie joodse mannen en een joodse vrouw over een thema dat joden en christenen bezighoudt: verzoening. Hun verhalen geven het jodendom een stem en een gezicht. Eeuwenoude teksten en tradities blijken springlevend te zijn en het dagelijks het leven in het land Israël richting te geven. De ontmoeting met de joodse traditie is verrassend en soms verwarrend, maar evenzeer fascinerend en verrijkend. Christenen kunnen van het jodendom leren dat verzoening met God op allerlei manieren het concrete leven raakt en dat dit om keuzes vraagt. Geen verzoening zonder bekering.

Kees Jan Rodenburg woont en werkt sinds eind 2003 in Jeruzalem. Namens het Centrum voor Israëlstudies heeft hij de taak de ontmoeting met het Joodse volk te zoeken. Dat krijgt vooral vorm door studie aan een joodse opleiding voor rabbijnen en deelname aan de dialoog tussen Joden en christenen.

The Three Rings. Textual studies in the historical trialogue of Judaism, Christianity and Islam
In history, Judaism, Christianity and Islam have been both partners and rivals. The well-known parable of the three rings argues in a beautiful paradox how the religion most beloved by the other two will turn out to be in possession of the true ring. This book collects a number of texts in which not just bilateral religious dialogues but the relations between one's own religion and the two others are documented. The texts translated and studied here date from the medieval period, both from the East and from the West. The shared knowledge of different religious traditions as testified to in some of these texts, may come as a surprise. Basic patterns of mutual understanding, pluralism, tolerance and dialogue-still relevant today-are drafted.

Wat christenen geloven & moslims niet begrijpen. Licht over leer en leven
Christenen moeten met moslims in gesprek. Daar vragen moslims om. Dat willen christenen ook. Maar hoe?
De islam pretendeert de definitieve, verbeterde versie te zijn van het christelijk geloof, en dit vraagt om een gedegen antwoord. De auteurs bieden daarvoor een aanzet op basis van hun jarenlange omgang met moslims. Zij zijn er allerminst van overtuigd dat we er met de islamitische profeet Mohammed en zijn Koran op vooruitgaan. Integendeel.
Beginnend en eindigend bij Jezus Christus leggen de auteurs, tegen de achtergrond van de islamitische leer, uit wat christenen geloven maar moslims nooit begrepen hebben.
Segers maakt aan de hand van de Tien Geboden duidelijk hoe heilzaam een op Christus georienteerde ethiek is; De Vries gebruikt de zes geloofspunten van de islam om te laten zien hoe heerlijk de christelijke geloofsleer is. Dit boek is geschreven voor christenen, om hen toe te rusten voor het gesprek met moslims. De auteurs nodigen moslims van harte uit om mee te lezen.
Gert-Jan Segers (1969) is directeur van het wetenschappelijk instituut van de ChristenUnie. Hij woonde en werkte zeven jaar in Cairo (2000-2007). Marten de Vries werkt sinds 2000 als missionair predikant in het Rijnmondgebied.

Seidman, N.
Faithful Renderings. Jewish-Christian Difference and the Politics of Translation
Faithful Renderings reads translation history through the lens of Jewish-Christian difference and, conversely, views Jewish-Christian difference as an effect of translation. Subjecting translation to a theological-political analysis, Seidman asks how the charged Jewish-Christian relationship--and more particularly the dependence of Christianity on the texts and translations of a rival religion--has haunted the theory and practice of translation in the West.
Bringing together central issues in translation studies with episodes in Jewish-Christian history, Naomi Seidman considers a range of texts, from the Bible to Elie Wiesel's Night, delving into such controversies as the accuracy of various Bible translations, the medieval use of converts from Judaism to Christianity as translators, the censorship of anti-Christian references in Jewish texts, and the translation of Holocaust testimony. "Faithful Renderings "ultimately reveals that translation is not a marginal phenomenon but rather a crucial issue for understanding the relations between Jews and Christians and indeed the development of each religious community.

Siddiqui, Mona
Christians, Muslims and Jesus
Prophet or messiah, the figure of Jesus serves as both the bridge and the barrier between Christianity and Islam. In this accessible and thoughtful book, Muslim scholar and popular commentator Mona Siddiqui takes her reader on a personal, theological journey exploring the centrality of Jesus in Christian-Muslim relations. Christain and Muslim scholars have used Jesus and Christological themes for polemical and dialogical conversations from the earliest days to modern times. The author concludes with her own reflections on the cross and its possible meaning in her Muslim faith. Through a careful analysis of selected works by major Christian and Muslim theologians during the formative, medieval, and modern periods of both religions, Siddiqui focuses on themes including revelation, prophecy, salvation, redemption, sin, eschatology, law, and love. How did some doctrines become the defining characteristics of one faith and not the other? What is the nature of the theological chasm between Christianity and Islam? With a nuanced and carefully considered analysis of critical doctrines the author provides a refreshingly honest counterpoint to contemporary polemical arguments and makes a compelling contribution to reasoned interfaith conversation.

Smith, J.I.
Muslims, Christians, and the Challenge of Interfaith Dialogue
The attacks of September 11, 2001 instantly heightened the American public's sensitivity toward matters of religious difference. Many Americans realized not only that non-Muslims need to learn more about Islam, but also that Muslims must better understand and articulate their own faith to themselves and others. In this volume, Jane Idleman Smith examines the current American Christian-Muslim dialogue, contextualized both through the history of Islam and of the contemporary West. As we approach the sixth anniversary of 9/11, Smith dares to ask what progress has been made through this dialogue, what happens when that dialogue fails, and what direction it will take in the years to come. Smith examines the recent theological writings of both Catholics and Protestants about dialogue and pluralism, and shows that since 9/11 a few Muslim scholars in the West have also begun to write about these issues. Now, she argues, many Christians and Muslims are expressing their desire to move beyond theological discussion into what is often called the "dialogue of engagement."

As evidence, she points to initiatives among young people, women, and African Americans as they attempt to find ways to work together in local projects of justice and community service. Throughout the book, one hears the personal voices of these Muslim and Christian participants in the American interfaith dialogue. While many of the encounters between Islam and Christianity over the past 14 centuries have been peaceful, Americans know little about the history of religious interaction beyond the Crusades or the fear Europe felt in the face of the invasions of the Turks. This volume is intended to educate Americans about the great diversity of Muslims in this country while illustrating how Christians and Muslims are coming together, not only to talk to each other, but to work together for the common good.

Do We Worship the Same God?: Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Dialogue
Often the differences between the three Abrahamic religions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam -- seem more obvious than their commonalities, leading to the question "Do we worship the same God?" Can the answer be "yes" without denying our differences? This volume brings Jewish, Christian, and Muslim philosophers and theologians together to answer this question, offering rare insight into how representatives of each religion view the other monotheistic faiths. Each of their contributions uniquely approaches the primary question from a philosophical perspective that is informed by the practice of worship and prayer. Concepts covered include "sameness" and "oneness," the nature of God, epistemology, and the Trinity. Do We Worship the Same God? models serious-minded, honest, and respectful interreligious dialogue and gives us new ways to address an ongoing question.

The Torah, the Gospel, and the Qur'an. Three Books, Two Cities, One Tale
Discussing the Bible and the Qur'an in one breath will surprise some Jews, Christians, and Muslims. But Anton Wessels argues that all three traditions must read the Scriptures together and not against each other. As his book title suggests, the three books, in the end, are actually one tale.

Wessels accepts Muhammad as a prophet and takes the Qur'an seriously as Holy Scripture along with the Old and New Testaments - without giving up his own Christian convictions. Respectfully reading the Torah, the Gospel, and the Qur'an together, he argues, is of crucial importance: our world often sees these religious books as the cause of conflicts rather than the solution to them.

Wessels, Anton
Thora, Evangelie en Koran. Drie boeken, twee steden, een verhaal
Als de Koran verboden zou moeten worden waarom dan ook de Bijbel niet? Deze 'heilige' boeken, de Tenach of het Oude Testament, het Nieuwe Testament en de Koran, worden immers vaak gebruikt om geweld te verdedigen, kruistochten of heilige oorlogen te legitimeren? Christenen hebben het eerste deel van de Bijbel wel als oud in de zin van verouderd gezien of zelfs antisemitisch uitgelegd en joden en christenen zien de Koran soms als plagiaat, zoals er moslims zijn die de Bijbel als vervalst en achterhaald beschouwen en in ieder geval als defi nitief vervangen door de Koran.

Volgens Anton Wessels is nu het moment gekomen om een andere leeswijzer te kiezen. Mozes was immers geen 'jood , Jezus geen 'christen' en Mohammed geen 'moslim'. Deze drie vallen niet samen met wat respectievelijk jodendom, christendom en islam ervan gebrouwen hebben. Bijbel en Koran zijn bedoeld in samenhang gelezen, verstaan en uitgelegd te worden bij voorkeur door alle drie samen: jood, christen en moslim.

Zoals Charles Dickens in zijn Een verhaal van twee steden (Parijs en Londen) inzicht wil geven in de Franse revolutie, willen de drie Boeken gelezen worden als een verhaal waarin twee steden tegenover elkaar staan: Babel de stad van het onrecht tegenover het visioen van Jeruzalem als de stad van gerechtigheid en vrede. Zo blijkt dat dit ene verhaal een relevante boodschap heeft voor jood, christen en moslim, in feite voor ieder mens.

Abraham's Promise presents a selection of important writings by noted Jewish philosopher-theologian Michael Wyschogrod, who is widely admired for his singular contributions to Jewish-Christian relations. Including several pieces never published before, this reader aptly captures the broad scope of Wyschogrod's work on Judaism and the Jewish-Christian encounter, collecting seminal essays, articles, and reviews that address such topics as the God of Abraham and the God of philosophy, sin and atonement, Judaism and the land, the Six Day War, Paul on Jews and Gentiles, and the theology of Karl Barth. An introductory essay by editor R. Kendall Soulen sets Wyschogrod's career and writings in context.
