The Future of Interfaith Dialogue : Muslim-Christian Encounters through A Common Word Hardback

Edited by Yazid (Liverpool Hope University) Said, Lejla Demiri

Description

A Common Word Between Us and You (ACW) is an open letter, dated 13 October 2007, from leaders of the Islamic religion to those of the Christian religion.

It calls for peace between Muslims and Christians and seeks common ground and understanding between both religions.

This volume examines the document from a number of perspectives.

Exploring the events that led to ACW, it provides an overview of responses to the document and its use of scripture.

It also relates the reception of ACW to several specific and contrasting contexts, and recommends new avenues for ACW-inspired discussion.

Advancing debate and dialogue between Jews, Muslims and Christians, this volume promotes a distinctive methodology for inter-religious studies, and serves as an invaluable resource for students and scholars of theology and religious studies.
