Poverty and Wealth in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, Hardback Book

Poverty and Wealth in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam Hardback

Edited by Nathan R. Kollar, Muhammad Shafiq

Description

This book gathers scholars from the three major monotheistic religions to discuss the issue of poverty and wealth from the varied perspectives of each tradition.

It provides a cadre of values inherent to the sacred texts of Jews, Christians, and Muslims and illustrates how these values may be used to deal with current economic inequalities.

Contributors use the methodologies of religious studies to provide descriptions and comparisons of perspectives from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam on poverty and wealth.

The book presents citations from the sacred texts of all three religions.

The contributors discuss the interpretations of these texts and the necessary contexts, both past and present, for deciphering the stances found there.

Poverty and Wealth in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam identifies and details a foundation of common values upon which individual and institutional decisions may be made.
