Christianity and Islam and the Issue of Pluralism

As Christians and Muslims continue to struggle one another in today's world--a struggle which, of course, Eastern Christians are familiar with from the very beginnings of Islam--a recent study may shed some light on how each can live with the other in the diversity of our time: Lewis Winkler, Contemporary Muslim and Christian Responses to Religious Plurality: Wolfhart Pannenberg in Dialogue with Abdulaziz Sachedina (James Clarke and Co., 2012),350pp.

About this book we are told:
In our rapidly changing and progressively globalized world, Christians and Muslims are faced with the prospect of directly encountering and responding to people of other faiths and cultures. This has pushed us all to address the vital question of how best to live with, work beside, and love one other as fellow citizens of our planet. Winkler argues that we must continually dialogue with one another - not only about the beliefs and practices held in common between us, but also about the ways in which we are distinctively different.
