Endorsements & Reviews-

"We are swamped with new books on Islam as a geopolitical force, but Fr. Ovey Mohammed's book is unique in focusing on Muslim-Christian relations and providing a sympathetic treatment of Islam as a credible faith response path to God. Aimed at college and university students, and suitable parish discussion groups, the book provides a well researched, non-technical introduction aimed at opening up areas for mutual study and dialogue between Muslims and Christians. I especially liked the way Fr. Mohammed correlates the two spiritual traditions and shows Islamic influences on Francis of Assisi, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, and Ignatuis of Loyola's Spiritual Exercises."
--Thomas Michel, SJ, Secretary for Interreligious Dialogue, Society of Jesus


"Muslim-Christian Relations introduces Christians to Islam, looks at the political, cultural, and economic obstacles between them, examines the theological issues and suggests a way forward in the interfaith dialogue that is faithful to the Bible and the Qur'an.

"A hopeful but realistic treatment of the thorny theological issues that divide as well as the broader areas of common concern and prospects for the future. . . . With discussion questions, suggested readings, a glossary, and directory of 'useful addresses,' this will make an ideal resource for study groups as well as college courses."
--John Renard, Saint Louis University

"Muslim-Christian Relations is not just another book on the growing shelf of titles on interfaith affairs. . . . [I]t is a book written with insight and compassion."
--Abdulkader I. Tayob, University of Cape Town
