Lucinda Mosher, Faculty Associate in Interfaith Studies, has announced the release of Power: Divine and Human: Christian and Muslim Perspectives, the latest in the Building Bridges Seminar series.
This is also the seventh book Professor Mosher has co-edited with the Rev. Dr. David Marshall, programme executive in interreligious dialogue and co-operation at the World Council of Churches in Geneva. The books are based on the proceedings of the Building Bridges Seminar’s 16th convening, which took place in Washington, DC, and Warrenton, VA, in May 2017.
The book, from Georgetown University Press, can be found at this link.
“This volume of the Building Bridges Seminar, Power: Divine and Human, Christian and Muslim Perspectives, comprises pairs of essays by Christians and Muslims which introduce texts for dialogical study, plus the actual text-excerpts themselves.
“This new book goes far beyond mere reporting on a dialogical seminar; rather, it provides guidance and materials for constructing a similar dialogical experience on a particular topic. As a resource for comparative theology, Power: Divine and Human is unique in that it takes up a topic not usually explored in depth in Christian-Muslim conversations. It is written by scholars for scholars. However, in tone and structure, it is suitable for the non-specialist as well. Students (undergraduate and graduate), religious leaders, and motivated non-specialists will find it readable and useful. While it falls solidly in the domain of comparative theology, it can also be used in courses on dialogical reading of scripture, interreligious relations, and political philosophy.”
