A collection of essays by leading scholars from the perspective of each faith addressing key issues which both divide and unite Jews, Christians and Muslims. The world today is only too painfully aware of the tension, suspicion and at times outright hostility that exists among followers of the three great monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In Abraham's Children distinguished scholars from all three faiths examine the key issues which either unite or divide Jews, Christians and Muslims today and offer constructive suggestions for developing mutual understanding, trust and co-operation. The book is divided into two parts. Part One, Foundations of Faith, explores the significance of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. Part Two, Resources for the Modern World, deals with such diverse topics as the image of God in humanity, religion and pluralism, gender, the environment and life after death. Each section is followed by a chapter identifying areas of common ground, as well as continuing differences and questions needing further exploration. The Oxford Abrahamic Group has been meeting for more than ten years. This book is the product of the fruitful interaction of its members, all of whom are highly conscious that monotheism itself is under question in the modern world. The book demonstrates that faith cannot be shared more widely without an acute awareness of the questions the world poses.

"Rabbi Solomon acknowledges that within the space of the Oxford Abrahimic interfaith dialogue, apologetics and selectiveness play a role in shaping the presentations. Yet, he argues, the continued existence of such a group directly challenges those who reduce reality to a conflict between civilizations, between Islam and the West." -"Jewish Herald-Voice, "June 2006


"It is impressive that such an erudite but carefully focussed book can be written at all from its triple launch-pad....there is illumination on almost every page"
