Argues that collaboration and bonds of respect are possible between Muslim, Jews and Christians today. The three Abrahamic traditions have a long history of clashes, often with disastrous results. This book offers an alternative to those who see only a future like the past: of increasing friction and violence. Three of the most respected figures representing Catholic Christianity, Judaism, and Islam--Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, Professor Reuven Firestone, and Professor Mahmoud Ayoub--show that collaboration can work, that it is possible to foster mutual understanding and appreciation of the different traditions in practical ways.
"Readers will learn much from this book, particularly from the candid and respectful way in which the three major contributors articulate their own perspectives and respond to the others. Highly recommended!"
