Volume 3: The Works of the Spirit. Taking the basics of the three related--and competetive--religious systems: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, F E Peters has juxtaposed extensive passages from the texts, along with his own skillful connective commentary, in a topical and parallel arrangement according to the issues that most concerned all these "children of Abraham." This volume is the third in a three part series and focuses on spirituality and worship. It contains material on monastism, theology, mysticism, and the "End Time." F. E. Peters is Professor of Near Eastern Languages and Literatures, History, Hebrew, and Judaic Studies at New York University.
