Overview

Muslims and Christians in many parts of the world meet ever more frequently. Each of the 12 succinct chapters Christian Troll deals with one of the questions Muslims ask Christians most frequently about Christian faith and practice. He explains the wider background for the question according to Muslim religious thought. Then, from the perspective of Christian faith and theology and of dialogue with Muslims, the Christian positions are clarified, and sensitive, honest proposals are made for responding to the questions. In this way the volume offers both Christians and Muslims a precious help for orientation and a solid basis for interreligious encounter and dialogue. The book covers topics ranging from scripture, Jesus and Muhammad, to the Christian Church, Eucharistic celebration, priestly celibacy, and religious freedom.

Editorial Reviews

James Massa
Interreligious dialogue involves the sensitive asking of questions in order to achieve mutual understanding and respect. In this introductory text Father Troll shows himself to be a faithful Catholic practitioner of dialogue and an outstanding scholar of Islam.
Sandra Toenies Keating
Based on his decades-long experience living and teaching among Muslims, Fr. Troll answers questions asked by Muslims about the beliefs and practices of their Christian neighbors. He places each set of questions within the context of contemporary Muslim perceptions, along with their sources in Islamic scripture & traditions. Fr. Troll answers them following orthodox Roman Catholic and traditional Protestant teachings. Muslims Ask, Christians Answer is a must-read for both experts & casual readers
