"Readers in search of a superb overview of theological themes essential to understanding and fostering serious Muslim-Christian intellectual engagement will find this new collection helpful and encouraging. Contributors of richly diverse backgrounds and scholarly interests forthrightly address a full spectrum of historically contentious issues, neither oversimplifying nor exaggerating the challenges they continue to present. Along the way, readers also get a sense of the multiple perspectives that emerge from within both larger Muslim and Christian constituencies over the ages."
--John Renard, Saint Louis University
"Driven to win at any cost, encounters between Christians and Muslims typically ignore the central aim of both religions to find truth and apply it. These essays look again at well-known points of disagreement, assess them objectively, and offer refreshing new approaches to them. The book holds out the promise of an end to past polemical scheming, and more honesty and respect in the future. It is a distinctive and original contribution to Christian-Muslim relations."
--David Thomas, University of Birmingham, UK
