Reviews

These are the days of religious fanaticism, extremism, and rabid devotion-not to mention miscommunication and misunderstanding. Interfaith relations, in short, are strained. Especially tense are the interactions between and among Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Brown, minister of the United Church of Canada, implores the world's believers to understand one another, arguing that "to judge all Muslims by standards set by Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein is as mistaken as to judge Christians by the Crusades or the Ku Klux Klan." He highlights 25 characters appearing in both the Bible and the Quran, contending that the story of Noah's other son is a parable or message for our time; those who heed its warning may transcend sectarian differences to work together in ameliorating such universal concerns as global warming, pandemics, and poverty. Respectful and moderate in tone, the text offers a sober-minded and refreshing approach to religion. Readers will acquire a mature and tolerant perspective on religion and gain an understanding of the similarities among these three influential faiths. Recommended for public and academic libraries.-C. Brian Smith, Arlington Heights Memorial Lib., IL Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Even readers well versed in Christianity may be surprised... A top pick for any serious spirituality collection."- The Internet Bookwatch, July 2007 -- The Internet Bookwatch
"A `happy' prophecy seems an oxymoron, at least within the biblical definition of the term, but Brian brown may actually have achieved such an anomaly in this study of the Koran and the Bible...His style is engaging, sometimes humorous, but invariably respectful. He wrestles with complex issues of literary and historical criticism, and the vexing field of comparative textual analysis, and succeeds in rendering them accessible but never simplistic." -James T. Christie, Touchstone, January 2009
"In an era of discord, this work will rejoices in the affirmation of human spirituality" Reviewed in Saudi Aramco World in March/April 2008 -- Khalid Afandi
"Pastoral theology of inter-faith dialogue contributes to the shaping of local practices and understanding in fundamental ways. As a recent conference on Abrahamic faith at the University of Toronto showed, the intersection of instructional practices beginning with children, all the way to the reformulation of theologies that include the other while remaining other, must have local expression. This takes place incomparably between ministers and lay leaders from community to community. Much of theological education as well as its mission the integration of theology and life. In this new millennium, the realization that the scripture of Judaism and Islam is always the script by which these faiths engage the world makes Brown's contribution a solid piece of what has come to be termed 'scriptural reasoning.' For this reason, I recommend it as one of the best contributions of its kind currently available in North America." --Kurt Anders Richardson, Toronto School of Theology, Toronto Journal of Theology -- Kurt Anders Richardson, Toronto School of Theology * Toronto Journal of Theology *
