Promotional Information

While many of the current interfaith projects are strictly theological in nature, Prayer: Christian and Muslim Perspectives breaks new ground by looking at what religious human beings all over the world do: pray. In learning about the rituals that gives shape to our deepest yearning and highest aspirations, we also come to grapple with how we see God, and our own true nature. Recommended for all who are interested in the Christian tradition, the Islamic tradition, and the dialogue between the two. -- Omid Safi, professor of Islamic Studies, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
