Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The more Muslims move into the cities and small towns of America, the more critical a book like this one becomes. When a Christian meets a Muslim business associate or when a Muslim meets a Christian neighbor, both seek a starting point for conversation about the similarities and differences in religious practices. This book offers that starting point. Muslim contributor Kateregga, the Ugandan ambassador to Saudi Arabia, and Christian contributor Shenk, a Mennonite theologian, are good friends who work out this "dialogue" in an ironic spirit. In explaining their respective faiths, the authors address the person and works of God, humanity, scripture, the person and work of God's messenger (Christ or Muhammad), salvation, the community of faith, and worship. The first section is devoted to Islam, with Christian responses ending each chapter. The second section reverses this structure. While the book serves as an adequate primer for Christianity and Islam, it lacks any deep engagement with subjects that often divide these two religions. Thus the book has the tone of a congenial interreligious conversation, but one should look elsewhere for detailed analysis of the two faiths. (Apr.)
Library Journal
This is a well-structured, respectful exchange between two close friendsa Muslim and a Christianwho discuss major points of belief and practice within their respective religions. Kateregga, formerly a professor of Islamic studies and currently the Ugandan ambassador in Saudi Arabia, outlines the core of the Muslim faith. After each chapter summary, there is a brief response by Shenk, who coordinates interfaith work for the Mennonite church in Pennsylvania; he points out shared values as well as essential differences from the Christian perspective. The second half of the book is patterned similarly, with Shenk outlining the essentials of Christian faith. An excellent introduction to the Muslim and Christian traditions and a valuable addition for most libraries.

    I'm glad I bought it

    I purchased this book in hopes of getting a better understanding of Islam and of the means for healthy dialogue between Muslims and Christians. Toward that end, this book has been very helpful; I appreciate the chance to hear a Muslim answer questions about what he believes, and to read dialogue around the issues presented in the book.
