Power: Divine and Human

Christian and Muslim Perspectives

This volume of the Building Bridges Seminar, Power: Divine and Human, Christian and Muslim Perspectives, comprises pairs of essays by Christians and Muslims which introduce texts for dialogical study, plus the actual text-excerpts themselves.

This new book goes far beyond mere reporting on a dialogical seminar; rather, it provides guidance and materials for constructing a similar dialogical experience on a particular topic. As a resource for comparative theology, Power: Divine and Human is unique in that it takes up a topic not usually explored in depth in Christian-Muslim conversations. It is written by scholars for scholars. However, in tone and structure, it is suitable for the non-specialist as well. Students (undergraduate and graduate), religious leaders, and motivated non-specialists will find it readable and useful. While it falls solidly in the domain of comparative theology, it can also be used in courses on dialogical reading of scripture, interreligious relations, and political philosophy.

Reviews

"The Building Bridges series of Christian-Muslim dialogues have become a unique and indispensable repository of resources to dialogue as theological exchange. The latest publication around the question of 'Power' is another invaluable resource for anyone looking for serious interactions between Christians and Muslims on one of the most pressing issues within and across the two faiths. What... distinguish[es] the Building Bridges contributions to Christian-Muslim scholarship is the way in which they consistently model a high quality of theological reflection with a confident ownership of the respective traditions in dialogue." — Richard Sudworth, Secretary for Inter Religious Affairs to the Archbishop of Canterbury and National Inter Religious Affairs Adviser, Church of England

"A deep intellectual and spiritual engagement of the concept of power from Christian and Muslim perspectives. Especially rich is its ability to engage key texts which discuss the concept. A must read for those who seek to better understand the similarities and differences between the world's two largest faiths." — Younus Y. Mirza, visiting researcher at Georgetown University and director of the Barzinji Project at Shenandoah University
