Studies in Christian–Muslim Relations VOLUME 8, PART 2: Parameters for Living Together
This is the eighth and final member of an 8-volume series that deals with major aspects of Christian-Muslim relations. The preceding volumes deal with violence, secularism, sharia (Muslim law) and related subjects. The volumes alternate between Christian and Muslim perspectives. This final volume offers parameters for the two religious communities to live together, parameters based on the foregoing as well as on the worldview of the author that is amply described. At a superficial reading, some Christian readers may well be shocked at what they might perceive as a Christian "giving in" to Muslim demands. A more thoughtful read will show a balanced perspective that takes seriously the principles held by all, namely democracy and pluralism.
