About this Book

Towards a Jewish-Christian-Muslim Theology delineates the ways that Christianity, Islam, and the Jewish tradition have moved towards each another over the centuries and points to new pathways for contemporary theological work. 

  • Explores the development of the three Abrahamic traditions, brilliantly showing the way in which they have struggled with similar issues over the centuries
  • Shows how the approach of each tradition can be used comparatively by the other traditions to illuminate and develop their own thinking
  • Written by a renowned writer in philosophical theology, widely acclaimed for his comparative thinking on Jewish and Islamic theology
  • A very timely book which moves forward the discussion at a period of intense inter-religious dialogue
