Addressing challenges arising from Christian-Muslim encounter, this book engages with the primary challenge - enabling outsiders to understand the religion of Islam. Douglas Pratt offers distinctive perspectives that complement much other literature in the study of Islam and in particular of Christian-Muslim relations and the relation of Islam and the West. Whilst in recent years there have been many introductions to Islam, a book that combines introductory material with issues of the relationship of Islam to Christianity and Judaism, and issues of dialogical engagement, is rare and offers an important complementary perspective to other texts.
