Summary

The interactions of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities over centuries have often been hostile and sometimes violent. This book discusses the essential and critical issues in each tradition's views of God, and of the earth and humanity.

"Here all the many-sided differences of cultural background, intellectual presupposition and political viewpoint are brought to the surface in tension with a profound sense of common responsibility to the one God who is worshipped by all three peoples of the book." -- John David Maguire, From the Foreword

In the Department of Religion at Claremont Graduate School, California, John Hick is Danforth Professor, Chair, and Director of the Blaisdell Programs in World Religions and Cultures, and Edmund S. Meltzer is Associate Professor and Associate Chair.
