Item description for Jewish-Muslim Encounters: History, Philosophy, and Culture by Charles Selengut...

An insightful book which examines the real problems which exist between the two traditions and presents contemporary conflict in an understandable theological and historical context. It also shows that respect and tolerance between Judaism and Islam is truly possible.This volume is authored by a wide range of distinguished Muslim and Jewish scholars, including philosophers, historians, political scientists, and theologians. The essays examine the Muslim-Jewish encounter in history, philosophy, religious thought, and cultural life, as well as theological and religious elements from these traditions. The essays reveal the complex history of Islam and Judaism, and the interconnectedness of the two traditions.Among the contributors, Lawrence Kaplan, a world famous Maimonides scholar, explores philosophical and theological links between the two traditions in his essay on the significant influence of the Arabic philosopher Al-Farabi on Moses Maimonides. Abdullah Noorudeen Durkee's essay paves the way for theological dialogue with his innovative notion of "multiple truths" and Irfan Ahmad Khan's essay shows the historical interconnectedness of the traditions in his treatment of the Koranic portrait of Moses. Charles Selengut and Yigal Carmon explore the critical theological issues at the root of religious violence in the Middle East. The contributors include Prof. Lawrence Kaplan, Dr. Irfan Ahmad Khan, Ms. Janice Rosen, Dr. Eliezer Don-Yehiya, Dr. Gilbert Kahn, Mr. Yigal Carmon, Dr. Rowena Hernandez Musquiz, Dr. Richard L. Rubenstein, Prof. Mustansir Mir, Prof. Sulaman Nyang and Abdullah Noorudeen Durkee.>
