The Community of Believers

Christian and Muslim Perspectives

The Community of Believers offers the proceedings of the 2013 Building Bridges seminar, a dialogue between leading Christian and Muslim scholars under the stewardship of Georgetown University.

These essays consider such themes as the Church as mystical body of Christ versus the Church as proclamation; the roots and uses of the term ummah and its development over time; Christian desires for communion, experiences of division, and approaches to unity; the history of Muslim disunity; twentieth-century Christian ecclesiology and its responses to a post-Christendom and post-Christian world; and the Arab Spring as a case study for contemplating accommodationism, conservatism, reformism, and fundamentalism as Muslim strategies to address the pressures of modernism. The volume also includes texts and commentaries used in the seminar's discussions of each topic and a concluding essay summarizing the tone, content, and style of participant exchanges throughout the seminar.

About the Authors

Lucinda Mosher is faculty associate in interfaith studies and director of the Multifaith Chaplaincy Program at the Hartford Seminary and assistant academic director of the Building Bridges Seminar.

David Marshall is associate professor of the practice of Christian-Muslim relations at Duke Divinity School and academic director of the Building Bridges seminar.

Endorsements

"The Community of Believers is the twelfth volume in what is arguably the most important extended series of scriptural and theological interfaith conversations: the Building Bridges seminars, originated by the Archbishop of Canterbury and now supported by Georgetown University."—Dr. Pim Valkenberg, The Catholic University of America

"Understanding one another is key to building stronger Christian/Muslim bonds. This volume of essays and associated religious texts provides a basis for dialogue in three timely areas of Christian/Muslim relations all focusing on issues of community. The format of the book provides readers with a strong source for developing new conversations between Christians and Muslims as well as bringing new topics to bear on existing dialogue efforts. "—Zeki Saritoprak, Director, Bediüzzaman Said Nursi Chair in Islamic Studies, John Carroll University
