In late 2007 Muslim leaders from around the world together issued in the pages of The New York Times an open letter to Christian leaders inviting cooperation as a step toward peace. The 138 signatories of "A Common Word between Us and You" included over a dozen grand muftis and an ayatollah, and the document was widely considered a huge step toward reconciliation between two major world religions so often seen to be at odds.
^^That original letter and a collaborative Christian response "Loving God and Neighbor Together" appear together in this remarkable volume. A Common Word also contains subsequent commentary and dialogue between Muslim and Christian scholars addressing critical and frequently asked questions about these two momentous documents.
