Synopsis

This book reflects on one of the most pressing challenges of our time: the current and historical relationships that exist between the faith-traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It begins with discussion on the state of Jewish-Christian relations, examining antisemitism and the Holocaust, the impact of Israel and theological controversies such as covenant and mission. Kessler also traces different biblical stories and figures, from the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, demonstrating Jewish-Christian contact and controversy. Jews and Christians share a sacred text, but more surprisingly, a common exegetical tradition. They also need to deal with some of the more problematic and violent biblical texts.



Jews, Christians and Muslims includes reflection on the encounter with Islam, including topics associated with a divergent history and memory as well contemporary relations between the three Abrahamic faiths. Kessler's writings shed light on common purpose as well as how to manage difference, both vital in forming a positive identity and sustaining a flourishing community.

Edward Kessler is a distinguished scholar, author and commentator on relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims. He is Founder of the Woolf Institute and Fellow of St Edmunds College, Cambridge. His publications include 'Bound by the Bible: Jews, Christians and the Sacrifice of Isaac' (Cambridge University Press, 2004) and 'An Introduction to Jewish-Christian Relations' (Cambridge University Press, 2010).
