Muslims and Christians in many parts of the World meet ever more frequently. Often Muslims ask Christians about their faith and practice. This volume deals with 12 of the most important questions and explains their wider background in Muslim religious thought. From the perspective of Christian faith and theology and of dialogue with Muslims the Christian positions are clarified, and sensitive, honest proposals are made for responding to the questions. In this way the volume offers Christians and Muslims a precious help for orientation and a solid basis for interreligious encounter and dialogue.
'Interreligious dialogue involves the sensitive asking of questions in order to achieve mutual understanding and respect. In this introductory text Father Troll shows himself to be a faithful Catholic practitioner of dialogue and an outstanding scholar of Islam.' (Reverend James Massa, Executive Director, USCCB Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs)
