Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One may agree or disagree with the specific viewpoint of a given author but the essays are thought-provoking and stimulating nonetheless. Given the lack of information about Islam and Christianity and the various approaches to their texts, this book will serve an important function in stimulating dialogue on such topics." - Robert J. Kaslyn, School of Canon Law, Catholic University of America
