Review:

A challenging, sensitive, appreciative, deep and broad–minded book.
The Muslim World Book Review

"The work of a master scholar who has devoted a lifetime of scholarly, dialogical, and contemplative reflection to these three interconnected traditions. Audacious in its breadth, the book also addresses important and urgent issues, ranging from creation and eschatology to providence and grace, and the debates that even today continue to divide Jews, Christians, and Muslims. This learned and passionate book is a service to all three communities, a helpful reference work for the ongoing dialogue."
Francis X. Clooney, SJ, Director of the Center for the Study of World Religions, Harvard University

Professor Burrell is an intellectual wonder and paragon of interfaith evenhandedness. This book takes us on a cross–religious intellectual journey in a way no other book I know does. It is a seminal piece of writing and its intellectual assumptions hold the key not only to interfaith peace in the world but also objective philosophical excellence.
Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad bin Talal

 

From the Back Cover:

Religious debate among Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scholars has acquired urgent new dimensions in recent years. Yet over the course of 1400 years, what have the Abrahamic traditions really learned from each other? Brilliantly demonstrating the ways that Christianity, Islam, and the Judaism have struggled with similarly intractable issues over the centuries, Towards a Jewish–Christian–Muslim Theology offers insightful new pathways for productive theological work, along with deep insights into the topic of faith itself.  

Burrell uses exercises in creative hermeneutics′ to show how each tradition struggles with complex issues, and how comparative inquiry illuminates those issues to the benefit of each tradition. For each key topic explored, renowned religious scholar and theologian David B. Burrell shows how intellectual trends of their day may be read to extend the reach of each tradition itself. By illuminating the actual and potential interaction among the dominant monotheistic religions, Towards a Jewish–Christian–Muslim Theology offers inspiration for continued theological dialogue and hope for people of all faiths in the 21st century.
