Sixteen Muslim, Jewish, and Christian scholars sought to answer one question: 'Do our three scriptures unite or divide us?' Each essay examines scriptural sources as read in the classical and medieval traditions, addressing issues including how each tradition addresses the 'other' within its tradition and without, and the challenges of modernity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The incredible strength of the volume becomes clear with a close read of introductions and these selections from the essays offered: few volumes today offer the depth of personal reflection, from such markedly different scholarly voices and traditions, across such a breadth of scholarly interests. Crisis, Call, and Leadership is a pleasure to browse and to study." - Lisa M. Hess, United Theological Seminary (OH)

'Scriptural reasoning, the growing practice of Jews, Christians, and Muslims reading their scriptures together, makes good academic and common sense in a time of crisis. This ground-breaking book, the outcome of an imaginative 3-year experiment by the Princeton Center of Theological Inquiry, shows scholars and thinkers of the Abrahamic traditions going deeper into the traditions and into their contemporary situation. The result is something new, wise, and relevant full of promise for the future. Where else can one find testimonies to Jews, Christians, and Muslims coming together not only in study, thinking, and wisdom-seeking but also in play, joy, and friendship?' - David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge and Director, Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme
