Muslims Ask, Christian Answer
Muslims and Christians in many parts of the world meet ever more frequently. In each of the 12 succinct chapters, Christian Troll deals with one of the questions Muslims ask Christians most frequently about Christian faith and practice. He explains the wider background for the question according to Muslim religious thought. Then, from the perspective of Christian faith and theology and of dialogue with Muslims, the Christian positions are clarified, and sensitive, honest proposals are made for responding to the questions. In this way the volume offers both Christians and Muslims a precious help for orientation and a solid basis for interreligious encounter and dialogue. The book's chapters are: Scripture and the Word of God; The Divinity of Jesus and the Incarnation; Cross, Sin and Redemption; Muhammad and the Christian Faith; God, the Three in One; The Church; The Holy Eucharist; Prayer; Religion and the World; Celibacy as a Religious Vocation; Religious Pluralism and Freedom of Religion; The Heart of Christianity.
