Item description for Trialogue: Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Dialogue by Leonard Swidler, Kalid Duran & Reuven Firestone...
Overview The word "trialogue" derives from the popular use of the term "dialogue," which comes from the two Greek words dia (across) and logos (word), and literally means "words across." Just as di-a-logos means "words between two persons," tri-a-logos means "words among three persons. --From the Foreword Author Leonard Swidler himself is one of the American originators of the term "trialogue" and here he raises it to a new level as he shares "the podium" with professors Reuven Firestone and Khalid Duran. These three professors, beginning with Firestone and Judaism, present their faith traditions and the challenges as well as possibilities for genuine trialogue. Each offers invaluable insights into the ways they share Hebraic roots and Abrahamic traditions and how their beliefs and practices have evolved through the centuries up to and including the present. Throughout the text, readers are encouraged to pause for reflection and/or discussion of the key points presented by the authors. This is a fascinating, enlightening, and highly recommended introduction to these three great faith traditions and how they evolved and are practiced today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Trialogue: Jews, Christians, and Muslims in Dialogue?
An EXCELLENT book of comparative religion! Dec 8, 2007
In my opinion this book should be a MUST READ for everyone at the high school level or above. The reason is that - no matter WHAT your religion is - or even if you have no religion at all - this book is a comparison of 3 of the worlds major religions, and as such, is a strong basis for understanding of the core beliefs and values of many of the worlds populations. To understand the similarities, and the differences, establishes a basis for tolerance, communication and understanding between peoples and nations. This book is a strong step in that direction and in promoting that ideal. All in all - EXCELLENT - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - and a MUST READ.
