A World of Inequalities

Christian and Muslim Perspectives

Edited by Lucinda Mosher
An important interfaith dialogue examines causes of global inequality and explores solutions.


In A World of Inequalities: Christian and Muslim Perspectives, fourteen leading Christian and Muslim scholars respond to the global crisis of inequality by demanding and modeling interreligious dialogue. This volume takes an intersectional approach, examining aspects of global inequality including gender, race and ethnicity, caste and social class, economic and sociopolitical disparities, and slavery. Essays explore the roots of these realities, how they are treated in Christian and Muslim traditions and texts, and how the two faiths can work together to address inequality.

A World of Inequalities brings readers into the conversation, inviting them to engage in a similar dialogue by offering pairs of essays alongside texts for close reading. Scholars, religious leaders, and students of theology and theological ethics will find this a useful resource to address this pressing issue.

About the Author

Lucinda Mosher is the rapporteur of the Building Bridges Seminar and coeditor of seven previous volumes generated by that dialogue. Concurrently, she is Hartford Seminary's Faculty Associate in Interfaith Studies and an affiliate of its Macdonald Center for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations. She holds a doctor of theology degree from the General Theological Seminary (NYC).

Reviews

"This book is a marvelous look at how both equality and inequality are addressed in various ways by Muslims and Christians. It provides us with not only a solid foundations in both religious traditions but also an opportunity to rethink our own views and reshape our own practices in light of that encounter and dialogue." — Amir Hussain, professor of Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University

"This remarkable volume offers a rich examination of equality and inequality from Muslim and Christian perspectives. Participants from the 2018 Building Bridges Seminar in Sarajevo explore Muslim and Christian texts, traditions, and theologies as they interact with ethnicity, class, gender, race, nationality, and more. The book presents a diverse and complex conversation between Muslim and Christian scholars that is essential for our time." — Tracy Sayuki Tiemeier, associate professor, Department of Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University
