Theological Issues in Christian-Muslim Dialogue

  • By Charles Tieszen
$22.00
Theological Issues in Christian-Muslim Dialogue addresses the main theological topics of discussion that appear in Christian-Muslim engagement. Many of these topics originate in the medieval period and the earliest encounters between Christians and Muslims. Even so, the topics persist in contemporary contexts of dialogue and engagement. Christians and Muslims still discuss whether or not God should be understood as strictly one or as a Trinity-in-Unity, and debates over the nature of revelation or prophethood remain. Theological reflection, therefore, must continue to be brought to bear on these topics in light of their history and in view of their applicability to growing contexts of inter-religious engagement. Theological Issues in Christian-Muslim Dialogue is a comprehensive theological sourcebook for students learning about Christian-Muslim relations and practitioners engaged in Christian-Muslim dialogue. ""Readers in search of a superb overview of theological themes essential to understanding and fostering serious Muslim-Christian intellectual engagement will find this new collection helpful and encouraging. Contributors of richly diverse backgrounds and scholarly interests forthrightly address a full spectrum of historically contentious issues, neither oversimplifying nor exaggerating the challenges they continue to present. Along the way, readers also get a sense of the multiple perspectives that emerge from within both larger Muslim and Christian constituencies over the ages."" --John Renard, Saint Louis University ""Driven to win at any cost, encounters between Christians and Muslims typically ignore the central aim of both religions to find truth and apply it. These essays look again at well-known points of disagreement, assess them objectively, and offer refreshing new approaches to them. The book holds out the promise of an end to past polemical scheming, and more honesty and respect in the future. It is a distinctive and original contribution to Christian-Muslim relations."" --David Thomas, University of Birmingham, UK Charles Tieszen is SIS Adjunct Professor of Islamic Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary and an editor of the Christian-Muslim Relations: A Thematic History volumes for the ongoing project Christian-Muslim Relations: A Bibliographical History. He is the author of Cross Veneration in the Medieval Islamic World (2017), A Textual History of Christian-Muslim Relations (2015), and Christian Identity amid Islam in Medieval Spain (2013).
