With keen insight and gentle understanding, Oil & Water: Two Faiths One God explores the differences between Christianity and Islam, as well as the many things these two enduring faith traditions hold in common--including, first and foremost, their belief in and desire to be faithful to the one, true God; their shared roots and scripture (from the Jewish faith); and the spiritual values of peace and social justice. Written for Christians by Muslim world-religions scholar Amir Hussain, the book is divided into two parts. Part 1, provides an overview of the Islamic faith and of the lives of Muslims in North America today. Part 2 explores key points for dialogue today, including issues of violence and jihad, the roles of women and men, and the mystical tradition within Islam. The book invites the reader to a place of reconciliation, to a place where the truth and value of each of these great faith traditions can be recognized and honoured by the other. In the end, the metaphor of oil and water is an interesting one for the reality of conflict and the hope for reconciliation between Islam and Christianity today.
