              Addressing challenges arising from Christian-Muslim encounter, this book engages with the primary challenge - enabling outsiders to understand the religion of Islam. Douglas Pratt offers distinctive perspectives that complement much other literature in the study of Islam and in p...articular of Christian-Muslim relations and the relation of Islam and the West. Whilst in recent years there have been many introductions to Islam, a book that combines introductory material with issues of the relationship of Islam to Christianity and Judaism, and issues of dialogical engagement, is rare and offers an important complementary perspective to other texts.

              By the late 20th century the Vatican and the World Council of Churches held other religions and their peoples, including especially Islam and Muslims, as worthy of respect and honoured as dialogue-partners. Early in the 21st century, in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 9.../11 and the concomitant global focus on Islam, two new dialogue initiatives arose, the 'Building Bridges' seminar series begun by the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Christian-Muslim Theological Forum initiated by an ecumenical group of young German scholars. They have each focussed on deepening theological dialogue between the two faiths. This book provides a close analysis of these two initiatives during their first decade. It demonstrates the reality of deep interreligious engagement possible between the two faiths today, thereby presenting a counter to the widespread presumption of irredeemable hostility, inevitable mutual rejection and increased violent extremism.

              The attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris in January 2015 once again brought to the fore the place of Islam in Western secular democracies, and the questioning of Muslim citizenship. The hyper-mediatisation of jihadist terrorism and its subsequent conflation with Muslim communities in... general, has led to both an increase in widespread popular fear of Islam and its followers, and the further marginalization and stigmatization of Muslim communities living in Western societies. This book brings together a range of studies and reflections pertinent to the contemporary issues surrounding religious citizenship and Islamophobia. Sentiments of insecurity and uncertainty, which far-right populist movements focus on, are increasingly finding resonance among ordinary citizens. Some traditional political parties are now flirting with demagogic discourse with respect to matters Islamic to the point where there is a hardening within Western democracies, manifested in the adoption of illiberal policies, the narrowing of the conception of secularity, and the alienation of a younger generation of Muslims. Yet there can still be found both glimmers of hope and slivers of sanity. This book was originally published as a special issue of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations.

              First published in 2005, this book addresses the challenges arising from Christian-Muslim encounter and attempts to enable outsiders to understand the religion of Islam. The author offers distinctive perspectives that compliment much other literature in the study of Islam and in ...particular Christian-Muslim relations and the relation of Islam and the west. The book is divided into three parts: Part I constitutes an introduction to Islam, Part II delves into aspects of the wider encounter with Islam and Part III explores issues in regard to the prospect of engaging in dialogue with Islam. The author argues that in the post-9/11 world the imperative to understand and engage with Islam is urgent and intends this work to assist the reader in doing so.
