Islam and Christianity seem to be at opposite and unbridgeable poles, both committed to world mission. Given the political tension and violent acts that sometimes surround these two major world religions, it is essential for both sides to understand the other's history, beliefs, traditions, and vision for the future.

This invaluable resource from David W. Shenk, an expert in comparative religious studies, examines Islam and Christianity at their deepest spiritual, cultural, and communal levels. It explores the similarities, and yet unavoidable differences found in Isaac and Ishmael, Jesus and Muhammad, the Bible and the Qur'an, Jerusalem and Medina, the Eucharist and the Hajj, the Church and the Ummah. Reflecting years of conversations and dialogue with Muslim friends, this is narrative theology, full of anecdote and personal experience that bridges the poles and builds understanding.

Appropriate for university and seminary classes, this guide also includes study questions for small groups or Sunday school classes.

"This provocative work of comparative theology from an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective will stir both Christians and Muslims to further dialogue and deeper reflection on the character of their faith in God." --Jon Hoover, Dar Comboni for Arabic Studies, Cairo, Egypt
