What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
A challenging, sensitive, appreciative, deep and broad-minded book.”
The Muslim World Book Review

"The work of a master scholar who has devoted a lifetime of scholarly, dialogical, and contemplative reflection to these three interconnected traditions. Audacious in its breadth, the book also addresses important and urgent issues, ranging from creation and eschatology to providence and grace, and the debates that even today continue to divide Jews, Christians, and Muslims. This learned and passionate book is a service to all three communities, a helpful reference work for the ongoing dialogue."
Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Director of the Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard University

“Professor Burrell is an intellectual wonder and paragon of interfaith evenhandedness. This book takes us on a cross-religious intellectual journey in a way no other book I know does. It is a seminal piece of writing and its intellectual assumptions hold the key not only to interfaith peace in the world but also objective philosophical excellence.”
Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad bin Talal
