Product Description

Often the differences between the three Abrahamic religions--Judaism, Christianity, and Islam--seem more obvious than their commonalities, leading to the question "Do we worship the same God?" Can the answer be "yes" without denying our differences?

This volume brings Jewish, Christian, and Muslim philosophers and theologians together to answer this question, offering rare insight into how representatives of each religion view the other monotheistic faiths. Each of their contributions uniquely approaches the primary question from a philosophical perspective that is informed by the practice of worship and prayer. Concepts covered include "sameness" and "oneness," the nature of God, epistemology, and the Trinity. Do We Worship the Same God? models serious-minded, honest, and respectful interreligious dialogue and gives us new ways to address an ongoing question.

Endorsements

Throughout their shared history Jews, Christians, and Muslims have asked the question posed in the title of this book, sometimes responding in the affirmative and sometimes in the negative. Too often, the means by which they have arrived at their answers have been left unstated or marred by a lack of clarity and rigor. This book is a welcome corrective to that tendency.
-John Kaltner,
Rhodes College

The history of Christian-Muslim relations is over a thousand years old, marked by a sustained quest for interfaith understanding...Do We Worship the Same God? explores the theological aspect of the interfaith issue with insight and candor, underscoring the challenges as well as the opportunities for engagement. A welcome contribution to current discussion of the subject.
-Lamin Sanneh,
Yale University

Do We Worship the Same God? invites us to love the one true God with all our mind. These essays challenge us to think carefully about deeply held convictions. I joyfully welcome this important multifaith work on monotheism as a valuable companion to Miroslav's excellent book Allah: A Christian Response.
-Rick Love,
President, Peace Catalyst International

Do we worship the same God? This is such an important question today. These groundbreaking high-quality essays from Christians, Jews, and a Muslim open important doors onto new paths.
-Gavin D'Costa,
University of Bristol

None of the contributors to this collection gives a clear, simple answer to the question that perplexes them all. And that's what makes this conversation so engaging and enlightening. Each of the authors responds with a 'yes but no' or a 'no but yes.' Together, they draw on tradition, philosophy, scriptural analysis, and--especially--mysticism to affirm both the depth and the diversity of faiths that call themselves monotheistic.
-Paul F. Knitter,
Union Theological Seminary

This extremely noteworthy book deals with a very critical and thorny issue, which is most often avoided. Highly academic and intellectually stimulating, this is also one of the most hopeful texts I have read on this subject. It is of critical significance for anyone involved in theologies of religion, especially within the 'monotheistic' or 'Abrahamic' tradition...Imperative for anybody who is involved in interfaith dialogue.
-Charles Amjad-Ali,
Luther Seminary
