The Cross And The Crescent: An Ecumenical Perspecitive is an analytical study of Christianity and Islam and a look at their relationship to one another. It is also much more. This study differs from all other works on the subject by tracing the differences in belief between the two great religions to matters of interpretation rather than substance. It is written to introduce both Christians and Moslems to each other's faith, without any bias or preconditions, or and preconcieved notions.The main theme of this work is the relationship of the two great faiths both historically and spiritually. The introduction views the Islamic theories of revelation as well as the Christian theory and sets the tone for the study in a genuine ecumenical spirit.
