Overview

This book analyzes Christian presentations of Christ for Muslims in the most creative period of Christian-Muslim dialogue, the first half of the ninth and the second half of the twentieth century. In these two historical moments, Christians made a serious effort to present their faith in Christ in terms that take into account Muslim perceptions of him, with a view to bridging the gap between Muslim and Christian convictions produced by Muslim rejection of Christ's divine sonship and the death of Christ by crucifixion. A comparative study is made of the contributions of three apologists from the early ninth century—Abu Qurra, Abu Ra'ita, and 'Ammar al-Basri—and three twentieth-century apologists—Kenneth Cragg, John Hick and Hans Kung—in order to seek a model for dialogue on Christology between Christians and Muslims in the twenty-first century.
