Contemporary Muslim-Christian Encounters: Developments, Diversity and Dialogues addresses the key issues in the present day global encounter between Christians and Muslims. Divided into two parts, the first examines theoretical issues and concerns which affect dialogue between the two traditions. The second part highlights case studies from around the world. Chapters come from established scholars including Reuven Firestone, Douglas Pratt and Clinton Bennett, emerging scholars, as well as practitioner perspectives. Highlighting the diversity within the field of "Christian-Muslim" encounter, case studies cover examples from the US and globally, and include dialogue in the US post 9/11, Nigerian Muslims and Christians, and Christian responses to Islamophobia in the UK. Covering unique areas and those not explored in detail elsewhere, Contemporary Muslim-Christian Encounters: Developments, Diversity and Dialogues will be of interest to advanced students, researchers, and interfaith professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A thorough and well-shaped publication which makes a significant contribution to the field ... The editor has succeeded in bringing together a notable group of writers who have succeeded in demonstrating the breadth and complexity of contemporary Muslim-Christian encounter as well as raising a number of significant issues relating to interreligious dialogue in general. * British Journal of Religious Education *
[The book's] greatest strength is the bringing together of a diverse range of topics and issues under discussion in a variety of local, national and international contexts ... I would recommend the book to all those interested in inter-religious studies, and interfaith dialogue in particular, be they academics, students and/or practitioners. * Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations *
A comprehensive contribution to the literature on Christian-Muslim relations and interfaith dialogue. * Journal of Dialogue Studies *
This is a timely and useful collection which combines historical, theoretical and empirical approaches to contemporary Muslim-Christian encounters - including the two religions' relation to "Shifting Thirds" such as Judaism, secularism and shared social challenges in differing contexts. -- Oddbjorn Leirvik, Professor of Interreligious Studies, University of Oslo, Norway, and author of Interreligious Studies (Bloomsbury Academic, 2014)
In this superb edited collection, Paul Hedges confirms again his characteristically open-hearted approach and integrity - both by his own substantial contribution and by the very choice of contributors. Along with the editor, the varied writers extend the range and deepen the quality of modern Christian-Muslim encounter. -- Shabbir Akhtar, Honorary Research Associate, Faculty of Theology, University of Oxford, UK
This volume brings together very useful insights from, on the one hand, the history and theory and, on the other, the contemporary praxis of Christian-Muslim encounter, from a wide variety of geographical contexts, including Nigeria and the DRC, Germany and Norway, Tower Hamlets and Bradford, Iran and Saudi Arabia, and the situation in the USA from both Christian and Muslim perspectives. A wide range of themes is also discussed, including gender and nuclear non-proliferation, with input from Jewish and Muslim, as well as Christian, commentators, and overall the complexity and multi-dimensionality of Christian-Muslim Relations are very well illustrated. -- Hugh Goddard, Director of the HRH Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World, University of Edinburgh, UK
Religious leaders, seasoned interreligious relations practitioners, and newcomers to dialogue all will find something useful ...a thought-provoking collection of perspectives on the history, methodology, theology, and practice of Christian-Muslim dialogue in a variety of contexts. * Reading Religion *
