Engagements with Abrahamic Religions
How do the three great "Abrahamic faiths"—Judaism, Christianity, Islam—relate to each other? How do they differ? What social, political, and religious issues face these traditions as they encounter each other in shared spaces across the globe? What does this tradition of faiths share with other faith traditions? Ours is a religious world, and in an ever-increasing globalized context, understanding each other is essential. At the heart of this enterprise is seeing our distinct religious traditions as a family—a shared heritage with differences that can be celebrated around common practices of reading texts, worshipping, and living together.
Fortress Press is proud to be an active partner in this task of engagement and understanding. We are committed to providing key textbooks (Religions of the World; The Emergence of Islam) and resources (The Qur’an; Islam; A Textual History of Christian Muslim Relations) for students and course use in religious studies; publishing for readers of all kinds clear, constructive guides to contemporary issues facing the religious traditions, directed toward finding helpful, healing solutions to living together (The Fear of Islam; Comprehending Christian Zionism; Mapping Exile and Return); to innovative, thoughtful, comparative scholarship, testing the differences and synergies between the great traditions (Was Jesus a Muslim?; Soundings in the Religion of Jesus; Rethinking Early Christian Identity; Paul within Judaism; Interpreting Abraham; The Immanent Divine). In these offerings, Fortress Press aims to facilitate understanding and walking in faith together.
