Publisher's Description

In Between Heaven and Hell, eminent and up-and-coming scholars representing a diversity of backgrounds and viewpoints address the question of non-Muslim salvation: according to the Islamic ethos (however understood), what can be said about the status and fate of non-Muslims? Each of the volume's contributors responds to this often asked "salvation question"-a question with profound theological and practical implications-from different angles: while some limit themselves to its historical dimensions, others approach it as theologians and philosophers, while yet others focus on the relationship between this-worldly relations with Others and next-worldly conceptions of salvation. Collectively and individually, the essays in this volume advance our understanding of Islamic thought and Muslim societies and indeed the discourse on religious diversity. This groundbreaking volume does not conclude with neat resolutions; instead, it offers fascinating expositions, debates, and points of departure for further contemplation. Contributors include Mohammad Hassan Khalil, Tariq Ramadan, William C. Chittick, Farid Esack, Mohammad Fadel, David M. Freidenreich, Marcia Hermansen, Jerusha Lamptey, Bruce B. Lawrence, Muhammad Legenhausen, Yasir Qadhi, A. Kevin Reinhart, Sajjad Rizvi, Reza Shah-Kazemi, and Tim Winter.

Editorial Reviews

Khalil s volumes encourage us to perceive inter-religious dialogue on a deeper level than that of superficial do-gooders unable to understand the real difficulties of religious confrontation. --Marginalia

"This is a collection of essays-as rich as it is unique-that tackles the weighty topic of salvation within the Islamic tradition. Rather than offering pat and monochromatic responses, the various authors demonstrate that a broad spectrum of perspectives is possible on this subject through a faithful and critical reading of foundational texts within Islam. Mohammad Hassan Khalil is to be commended for bringing this multifaceted intra- and interfaith conversation to the attention of a broad reading public."--Asma Afsaruddin, Chair & Professor of the Department of Near Eastern Languages & Cultures, Indiana University
