About-

This probing collection of essays bring together a stellar group of Muslim and Christian, African and Western scholars. Together they explore the question, "Where does one community's right to commend itself to others leave off, and another community's right to be left alone begin?"

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This collection of essays by Muslim and Christian scholars addresses the issue as to whether Islam, Christianity, and African religion can co-exist in peace in pluralist societies. I particularly liked the way each author tried to answer the question within the wider context of the political, social, economic, ethnic, cultural, and legal reality of various countries. The book makes a significant contribution to the understanding of the complexity of proselytization not only in Africa, but also in multifaith communities throughout the world."
