Description Interview Reviews Table of Contents
An intriguing question — Do Muslims understand Jesus in some ways more historically appropriate than Christians do? — leads Robert F. Shedinger into a series of provocative challenges to the disciplines of religious studies and comparative religions. Questioning the convenient distinction between "politics" and "religion" and the isolation of "religion" from wider social and cultural questions, Shedinger offers a proposal for a more accurate and respectful understanding of faith that he argues will improve possibilities for mutual understanding among Christians, Muslims — and others.
