Product Description

Considering many Western misconceptions of Islam, is it possible that Muslims understand Jesus in some ways more historically appropriate than modern Christians do? In this book, Robert F. Shedinger offers a series of provocative challenges to the disciplines of religious studies and comparative religions. Questioning the convenient distinction between "politics" and "religion" and the isolation of "religion" from wider social and cultural questions, Shedinger offers a proposal for a more accurate and respectful understanding of faith that he argues will improve possibilities for mutual understanding among Christians, Muslims-and others.
