Muslims, Christians, and the Challenge of Interfaith Dialogue

Jane Idleman Smith (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Three hypothetical dialogue encounters between Muslims and Christians introduce the reader to some of the issues that can arise in interfaith conversation. The first is a dialogue set up by a local ecumenical council and involves Christians and Muslims from a range of backgrounds. The second is a conversation among African American Muslims and Christians, and the third involves Roman Catholic and Muslim women. In these three different kinds of dialogues the reader can begin to get some sense of the breadth of possibility for bringing Muslims and Christians in the contemporary United States together for better understanding and the possibility of serious friendships.
