Judaism, Christianity and Islam: An Introduction to Monotheism shows how a shared monotheistic legacy frames and helps explain the commonalities and disagreements among Judaism, Christianity and Islam and their significant denominations in the world today. Taking a thematic approach and covering both historical and contemporary dimensions, the authors discuss how contemporary geographic and cultural contexts shape the expression of monotheism in the three religions. It covers differences between religious expressions in Israeli Judaism, Latin American Christianity and British Islam. Topics discussed include scripture, creation, covenant and identity, ritual, ethics, peoplehood and community, redemption, salvation, life after death, gender, sexuality and marriage. This introductory text, which contains over 30 images, a map, a timeline, chapter afterthoughts and critical questions, is written by three authors with extensive teaching experience, each a specialist in one of the three monotheistic traditions.

In a time when cultural exchange and understanding have become crucial, could there be a more timely book than this one? Three experts in the field take a deep dive into the birth of the three faiths, their historical and contemporary complexion, their commonalities and diversities. While such books are abundant, this most recent attempt stands apart for its remarkable accessibility, imparting knowledge without ever feeling pedantic. * INDULGE Magazine *
At long last: a highly readable and non-apologetic introduction to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In this seamless book, the authors tell us where these three religions came from, while also showing how they interact with one another in the present and how such interaction will shape our future * Aaron W. Hughes, Philip S. Bernstein Professor, University of Rochester, USA *
This well-curated volume on the monotheistic heritage shared by Judaism, Christianity, and Islam highlights the underlying structures of the three faith traditions, while simultaneously underscoring the distinctiveness and internal diversity of each. Attentive to both discursive formations and lived experiences, this volume presents a remarkable introduction to the study of monotheistic religions and their key terms, concepts, practices, and social expressions * Zayn Kassam, John Knox McLean Professor of Religious Studies, Pomona College, USA *
