Chapter 9 explores Islamic theology related to Jesus in light of its implications for Muslim-Christian cooperation, pluralism, and world peace. Saritoprak emphasizes the importance of dialogue and pluralism in Islamic tradition and discusses the place of dialogue and the concept of the “People of the Book” in the Qur’an. He builds on a consideration of Qur’anic and historical associations between Muslims and Christians to address their current relationships and the many practical, philosophical, and theological efforts at rapprochement now under way. Such efforts include those of Fethullah Gülen as well as the Islamic idea of a “common word” which is being used to advance Christian-Muslim fellowship and dialogue through the Common Word Initiative. Such initiatives, Saritoprak argues, hold out promise of possibilities for broader transreligious and transcultural dialogue.
