Can there be dialogue between Muslims and Christians? Can we overcome the long history of antagonism between the two largest religious communities in the world–Christianity and Islam? The twenty essays in the volume address these vital issues as they explore the promise and problems of dialogue between these two great traditions. Here Muslims and Christians speak of their faith with passion and insight as they seek to move beyond mutual antagonism toward mutual understanding. The essays cover a range of issues from the encounter of Islam and Christianity with modernity to Islam in Africa, from the role of women to the understanding of Messiah/Jesus in Islam and Christianity and the role of the Prophet Muhammad in Muslim piety. Rather than seeking to convert the other, these internationally known scholars and religious leaders contribute to mutual understanding between Christians and Muslims.

Muslims and Christians constitute nearly sixty-percent of religious believers. Yet Muslims and Christians remain strangers to one another hidden behind caricatures of ‘the Muslim as terrorist,' ‘the Christian as crusader.' Here the reader will encounter a more humane face of believers in each tradition as each writer explores in his own voice the hope for a new era in Muslim-Christian relations.
