Why Can’t They Get Along?
A conversation between a Muslim, a Jew and a Christian
OTHER EDITIONS AVAILABLE: Ebook |
Christians, Muslims and Jews all stem from one man, Abraham, and yet relations between them are so often strained. Three men of faith – one Jew, one Muslim and one Christian – debate the differences between them. The result is a compelling discussion: What do their faiths teach on the big issues of life? What can be done to make for better relationships in the future? What can be done on the big global areas of conflict and tension? How can they get along?
For hundreds of years, many of the biggest global conflicts have been fuelled by religious hatred and prejudice. It is evident, in the early part of the 21st century that not much has changed. Whether it is fundamentalist Muslims waging jihad in Afghanistan and Pakistan, or the perpetual low scale hostilities between Israel and the Palestinians, to the man in the street, religion seems to make people more likely to fight each other, not less. Why is this?
Why Can’t They Get Along? is a powerful and much needed account. Current, passionate and compelling it is essential reading.
