Both traditions recognize and draw theological and historical lessons from some of the same narrative sources, but this is the first comparative resource to provide interdisciplinary coverage of the history and textual sources associated with prophets and prophecy. This thorough treatment of a difficult and increasingly controversial subject area will encourage and cultivate knowledge and understanding.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[A] helpful volume. * International Review Of Biblical Studies *
The dictionary is a must for comparativist scholars and serious students of the Abrahamic traditions, and belongs in every college and university library reference section. * Religion & Literature *
This encyclopedic work will be most useful to students and scholars who want a non-technical, quick reference on prophetic topics, figures, or sources. The information provided is clearly written and contains enough substance to answer most questions that the non-specialist would ask. The inclusion of both biblical and Quranic entries in the same volume is a useful feature, since it allows those interested in one area to draw easily on similar material from the other tradition. * Journal of the American Oriental Society *
...invaluable information for anyone....a useful contribution to the field of comparative Islamic-Jewish studies. It is a good initial resource work....The comprehensive bibliographies especially serve as excellent launching tools for further in-depth interdisciplinary research. * Journal Of Near Eastern Studies *
Uses a dictionary format to examine topics in Islamic and Judaic prophecy. * Booklist *
The entries on the main characters and prophetic figures shared by the Biblical and Islamic traditions - Aaron, Adam and Eve, David, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, and so on - are extremely informative, concise, and accurate synopses...providing an excellent basis for comparative study...This historical dictionary is an extremely informative and useful work, and hopefully it will promote the more informed comparative study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. * American Journal of Islamic Social Studies *
