Description

"The reader is led through the centuries, and through the varieties of regional diversity, to a serious appreciation of the richness and importance of the subject."--Sheila McDonough, Concordia University, Montreal "This volume far surpasses others of its kind in quality and breadth. It examines the critical issues surrounding the legitimacy, efficacy and, in some scholars' views, the very possibility of dialogue."--Tamara Sonn, University of South Florida The authors of these essays examine the ways in which Muslims and Christians worldwide have encountered one another over 1,400 years and the ways in which they are engaged today, enlightening current interpolitical, intersocial, and intereconomic relationships. Covering geographical, historical, and methodological topics that range from medieval scripture to contemporary theological reflections and including contributions from both Muslims and Christians, the essays will interest scholars of Islamic history and political science, religious leaders, and the general public.
