About-

How can Christians committed to the classical Christian tradition (Evangelicals and Catholics) address the issues raised by contemporary Islam? Along with and even prior to much needed dialogue between Christians and Muslims, Christians need to ask themselves how their Scriptures and traditions might bear on such dialogue. Do the divisions among Christians (Catholic and Evangelical) fracture the classical Christian tradition in ways that undercut "Christian"-Muslim dialogue before it starts? Or does that classical tradition provide resources for thinking out and working out their own divisions in ways that will ready them for authentic conversation with Muslim brothers and sisters in Christ? And what does this tradition have to teach us about what Christians can and must learn from Muslims about their own traditions? The essays in this volume begin to address these questions.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The importance of this book is that it brings together the voices of Catholic and evangelical Christians on an issue in which they have so much in common. . . . This book shows that there have been times in which Christians took the challenge of Islamic theology seriously, and it serves as a foretaste for new forms of Christian theology in conversation with Islam in the near future."
--Pim Valkenberg, The Catholic University of America
