The book describes the challenge of modernity faced by Muslims and Christians and the issue of religious pluralism. It describes Muslims' encounters with Christianity in the first half of this century and their participation in organised dialogues initiated by the Churches in the second half. It highlights their apprehensions and expectations in dialogue and issues of co-existence in the world today. The book focuses on six prominent Muslim personalities who represent a wide spectrum of Muslim opinion and three international organizations and their attitude towards dialogue.
'This is a carefully researched, thorough, and very readable study of Christian-Muslim relations...The book marks an important contribution to the existing literature on Muslim-Christian relations, not only due to its content, but also because it contributes to the process of redressing the current imbalance of input from the two faith communities on the subject and process of dialogue.' - Sophie Gilliant, University of Exeter 'This soundly researched and well-written study will provide a healthy stimulus to those already engaged in dialogue and, hopefully, an encouragement to those who still hesitate to take the plunge.' - Michael L. Fitzgerald, Islamuchristiana
