[Judaism, Christianity, and Islam] offers a superb view of three distinct yet kindred religions. * Times Higher Education *
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 *
