Non-Muslims in Muslim Majority Societies - With Focus on the Middle East and Pakistan
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"In a world where religions coexist in almost every country with new problems and new challenges, this book is a genuine and authentic effort to face these challenges. Religion is expressed in a culture and influences culture. It is time to understand religions from within, as presented by the followers of those religions, to overcome prejudices and generalizations. Such a serious, comprehensive, and profound collaborative work clarifies the complexity of the questions and helps in finding solutions together. This is an indispensable book."
--Fr. Jamal Khader,
Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Bethlehem University
"Despite the claim of Muslims that Islam is respectful of non-Muslim faiths, this collection of essays throws more light on the real situation in many Muslim societies. Those committed to pursuing Christian-Muslim relations will find this volume a valuable resource."
--J. Paul Rajashekar,
Luther D. Reed Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia
"This book provides a global picture, by focusing on specific cases of Christians living in societies where Muslims are in the majority. It explores what "majority" means theologically and politically, particularly how minority groups experience it, as one kind of inter-religious encounter today."
