Book: Allah: A Christian Response

Book: Allah: A Christian Response

Although not mentioned in the publisher's description (and only briefly in the text itself), Miroslav Volf (Yale), a student of Jürgen Moltmann's, situates his recent book, "Allah: A Christian Response" (HarperOne, February 2011), in the context of political theology.

In an interview this week, he said: "If Muslims and Christians cannot meaningfully engage each other on a moral plane, they will fight. That's at the heart of my exploration in Allah - a book of political theology - of the question of whether Muslims and Christians worship the same God. Given that moral qualities are inseparable from God's being, if God is the same, the moral universe will be the same; if Gods are incompatible, two moral universes exist."
