In the last 50 years, Muslims have moved to the West in increasing numbers. This has resulted in xenophobia, discrimination, and acts of terror. Still, Kaemingk vigorously argues for a pluralism that allows for upholding Christianity as well as defending the rights, dignity, and freedom of followers of Islam.

An alternative, uniquely Christian response to the growing global challenges of deep religious difference
In the last fifty years, millions of Muslims have migrated to Europe and North America. Their arrival has ignited a series of fierce public debates on both sides of the Atlantic about religious freedom and tolerance, terrorism and security, gender and race, and much more. How can Christians best respond to this situation?
In this book theologian and ethicist Matthew Kaemingk offers a thought-provoking Christian perspective on the growing debates over Muslim presence in the West. Rejecting both fearful nationalism and romantic multiculturalism, Kaemingk makes the case for a third waya Christian pluralism that is committed to both the historic Christian faith and the public rights, dignity, and freedom of Islam.
"Fantastic. . . . This useful and accessible academic work provides Christians a compassionate, coherent approach to the pressing problem of how religious difference should be handled in a secular society."
author of Islamic Exceptionalism: How the Struggle over Islam Is Reshaping the World
"This is a wonderfully written, ambitious, and urgent work of theology, ethics, and political theory. It rings with unusual vitality and passion."
author of Multiculturalism: A Christian Retrieval
"A pathbreaking, theologically rich Christian intervention into contemporary public debates over the place of Muslims in western societies. . . . Matthew Kaemingk has pulled off a feat many would have thought impossible."
University of Edinburgh
"Through an in-depth, critical engagement with Abraham Kuypers theological ethics, Matthew Kaemingk shows why and how commitment to Jesus Christ should issue in a political pluralism marked by hospitality to and solidarity with Muslim neighbors."
Kevin den Dulk
"Kaemingk is a winsome guide through difficult terrain. He avoids the easy dead-endsassimilate or stay outthat too often shape responses to the real challenges of Muslim immigration in western democracies. But he also doesnt assume that well find our way somewhere in the middle of those opposing poles. Instead, he charts an alternative course, using a theological map that takes pluralism seriously. Along the way, he stays grounded in real-world experience while never losing sight of basic convictions. The result: A book that is both timely and compelling."
Kristen Deede Johnson
Western Theological Seminary
"While engaging lived realities and introducing us to actual people impacted by those lived realities, Matthew Kaemingk provides a compelling vision for Christian faith to serve as a bridge, not a barrier, to loving the many different neighbors we live alongside within our contemporary pluralistic context. This extraordinary book is of tremendous import for the big questions the church needs to ask in this complex cultural moment; at the same time it affirms the significance of the small, daily ways Christians can love their neighbors through their regular lives and callings. I wish all Western Christians would engage with Kaemingks exceptionally readable and timely book as they wrestle with what it means to be a Christian called to love with generous hospitality in our pluralistic culture."
Jordan J. Ballor
"In this compelling work Matthew Kaemingk asks what Amsterdam has to do with Mecca, and the answers he finds turn out to have implications the world over. . . . The charity and clarity on display here will challenge Christians to think more deeply, and to act more responsibly, in response to the call to live peacefully and faithfully with Muslim neighbors."
