CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS
IN THE COMMONWEALTH

A Dynamic Role in the Future
Edited by
Anthony O'Mahony and Ataullah Siddiqui

The Christian and Muslim communities combined represent a third of humanity and an understanding of their historical and theological relationship is of the utmost contemporary importance. The papers presented here stand as testament to the multiple dimensions of how the relations between Muslims and Christians operate today within the context of the Commonwealth. Individual papers deal with the situation in Australasia, Britain, India, Malaysia and Nigeria, whilst others try to grapple with the historical, political and theological dimensions of Muslim-Christian relations. However, what they have to say is relevant to other contexts as the engagement between these two Abrahamic traditions-Christianity and Islam-takes on a global reality. All the contributors give expression to this relationship in a number of committed essays which represent up-to-date scholarly analysis or expressions of a deep personal and spiritual reflection.
