Description

From Miroslav Volf, one of the world's foremost Christian theologians--and co-teacher, along with Tony Blair, of a groundbreaking Yale University course on faith and globalization--comes Allah, a timely and provocative argument for a new pluralism between Muslims and Christians. In a penetrating exploration of every side of the issue, from New York Times headlines on terrorism to passages in the Koran and excerpts from the Gospels, Volf makes an unprecedented argument for effecting a unified understanding between Islam and Christianity. In the tradition of Seyyed Hossein Nasr's Islam in the Modern World, Volf's Allah is essential reading for students of the evolving political science of the twenty-first century.

Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?

Yale University religion scholar Miroslav Volf--widely known for the much-publicized course on faith and globalization he coteaches with Tony Blair--places this question at the root of the twenty-first century's most sensitive, and critical, geopolitical concerns. Volf reveals how the prevalent belief that these traditions worship different gods is directly linked to increased hostility and violence around the globe. Theological wars fuel real wars.
