Interreligious dialogue

RUTH ILLMAN wishes to reclaim interreligious dialogue from the purely intellectual, and so has researched Art and Belief from the perspective of artists who are engaged in such conversation. The six artists who participated in her study come from different fields - literature, multimedia, music, and visual art - and faith backgrounds within the Abrahamic traditions. She addresses how the forms and functions of interreligious dialogue can be understood in contemporary culture, what part art can play as a metaphor in religious dialogue, and how the six chosen artists engage personally in this arena (Equinox, £60 (£54); 978-1-84553-966-5).

Christian Troll's Muslims Ask, Christians Answer is aimed at Christians who may find themselves in dialogue with Muslims and be unsure what to say. Troll addresses 12 areas in his book. For each, he sets out both Islamic and Christian perspectives before going on to suggest answers that may be offered to enquiring Muslims. Originally written in German, this book is a translation by David Marshall (New City, £12.50 (£11.25); 978-1-56548-430-6).
