Allah: A Christian Response

Allah: A Christian Response, by Miroslav Volf

AllahAmazon: Recently, at Wheaton College — an evangelical school — a faculty member, in solidarity with Muslims, stated that Christians, Jews & Muslims worship the same God.  This stirred no small amount of controversy, with major donors calling for her dismissal, while students, faculty, and many across the Christian world protested her treatment.  At this time (Jan. 25, 2016) the issue of her dismissal has not been resolved.  Here is a discussion at the Jesus Creed blog of what one prominent evangelical theologian, Miroslav Volf, has to say on the topic.  And we list the book he recently wrote as well.

Amazon:  From Miroslav Volf, one of the world’s foremost Christian theologians—and co-teacher, along with Tony Blair, of a groundbreaking Yale University course on faith and globalization—comes Allah, a timely and provocative argument for a new pluralism between Muslims and Christians. In a penetrating exploration of every side of the issue, from New York Times headlines on terrorism to passages in the Koran and excerpts from the Gospels, Volf makes an unprecedented argument for effecting a unified understanding between Islam and Christianity. In the tradition of Seyyed Hossein Nasr’s Islam in the Modern World, Volf’s Allah is essential reading for students of the evolving political science of the twenty-first century.
