About-

Jesus and the Incarnation Reflections of Christians from Islamic Contexts
In the dialogues of Christians with Muslims nothing is more fundamental than the Cross, the Incarnation and the Resurrection of Jesus. An open and honest conversation on these is a necessity as Christians all over the world meet with Muslims on a daily basis. Building on the volume on the Cross, published in 2009, this book contains voices of Christians living in various 'Islamic contexts' and reflecting on the Incarnation of Jesus. The aim of these reflections is constructive and the hope is that the papers weaved around the notion of 'the Word' will not only promote dialogue among Christians on the roles of the Person and the Book but, also, create a positive environment for their conversations with Muslim neighbors.

Endorsements & Reviews-

The incarnation has traditionally been one of the great stumbling blocks to Muslim-Christian dialogue. In this collection of essays, David Emmanuel Singh brings together a magnificently diverse range of Christian voices, all carrying a history of deep engagement with Islam, to help bring some fresh nuance to that often stale debate. Not only do these contributions provide perspectives that may enable Christians and Muslims to glimpse beyond the blockages of the past, they also illustrate how deep engagement with Islam can open up new and important insights for Christians on a core doctrine of their own faith.
The Revd. Dr. Toby Howarth, Inter Faith Advisor to the Archbishop of Canterbury and Vicar, St Christopher's Church Springfield.

It is hard to think of any other subject that takes us so quickly to the heart of theological dialogue between Christianity and Islam. Any attempt to explore the concept of Incarnation from a Christian perspective needs to be grounded in an accurate and respectful understanding of Muslim thinking, an awareness of the legacy of fourteen hundred years of shared history, and prolonged, personal engagement with Muslims in many different context around the world. This volume scores highly on all these criteria. A very international team of writers - who are all both academics and practitioners - has produced a sensitive but compelling invitation to both Christians and Muslims to go on talking about how they believe God has reached out to humanity.
Colin Chapman, former principal of Crowther Hall, Birmingham.
