Product Description

Featuring a constructive and user-friendly question-and-answer format, What Do Our neighbors Believe? offers salient and reliable introductions to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, allowing readers the flexibility to compare and contrast as they read along or, if they prefer, concentrate on one religion at a time. Accessibly and engagingly, an expert on each faith clearly conveys the histories, theological understands, practices, and contemporary challenges of these three great traditions. Of the nearly thirty questions discussed, the following are included:
When, where, and how did the religion begin? Who have been the key people in the development of the religion? How is the sacred text studied and used? How is the human condition understood in the religion? What is the relation between religion and politics? What issues are the most hotly debated by the followers of the religion?

Howard Greenstein serves as Rabbi of the Jewish congregation of Marco Island, FL
Kendra G. Hotz serves as Adjunct Professor of Theology at Memphis Theological Seminary. She is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
John Kaltner is a member of the Department of Religious Studies at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, where he teaches courses in Bible, Islam, and Arabic.
