An intriguing question Do Muslims understand Jesus in some ways more
historically appropriate than Christians do? leads Robert F. Shedinger
into a series of provocative challenges to the disciplines of
religious studies and comparative religions. Questioning the
convenient distinction between "politics" and "religion" and the
isolation of "religion" from wider social and cultural questions,
Shedinger offers a proposal for a more accurate and respectful
understanding of faith that he argues will improve possibilities for
mutual understanding among Christians, Muslims and others.
