A Muslim Perspective on Interfaith Dialogue With Christians
This essay will be an introduction to interfaith dialogue between Muslims and Christians. It will begin with autobiographical information about how the author, a Canadian Muslim of Pakistani origins, came to be a professor of theology in a Jesuit university in Southern California. It will then move to a discussion of problematic verses in the Qur’an that would seem to discourage interfaith dialogue, and then discuss those verses that promote alliance between Muslims and Christians. Next, I will discuss inclusive and exclusive views in both Islam and Christianity with reference to Jesus as a focal point for dialogue between Muslims and Christians. The essay will end with a discussion of pluralism.
