Islam and Christianity Today - a contribution to dialogue by W. Montgomery Watt

Islam The role of the Middle Eastern countries in world politics and economics has become more prominent in recent years. The impact of Islamic culture on the West and the meeting of Islam and Christianity take on a new importance. This title looks at the meeting of the religions, how they see and have seen each other in dealing with the problems of the world today.

William Montgomery Watt (14 March 1909 - 24 October 2006) was a Scottish historian, an Emeritus Professor in Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh. Watt was one of the foremost non-Muslim interpreters of Islam in the West, and according to Carole Hillenbrand "an enormously influential scholar in the field of Islamic studies and a much-revered name for many Muslims all over the world".

This book, published in 1983, is still an important publication, which defends both faiths and compares and contrasts their beliefs and doctrines.

Historical Religious Texts

The Dead Sea Scrolls

translated by Geza Vermes

Dead Sea On the western shores of the Dead Sea, about eight miles south of Jericho, lies a complex of ruins known as Khirbet Qumran. It occupies one of the lowest parts of the Earth, on the fringe of the hot and arid wastes of the Wilderness of Judea, and it today, apart from occasional invasions from coach loads of tourists, lifeless, silent and empty. But from that place members of an ancient Jewish religious community whose centre it was, hurried out one day and in secrecy climbed the cliffs in order to hide away in eleven caves their precious scrolls. No one came back to retrieve them undisturbed for almost 2000 years... until 1947.

vermes This translation of the scrolls by Geza Vermes enables the general reader to come into direct contact with the literary works found at Qumran. The text has been selected from the acclaimed book by Geza Vermes 'The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls in English' and the aim has been to include all the more complete scrolls especially those, which describe the community that created them and throw light on its customs and beliefs. They include community rules and laws on peace and war, hymns, songs and psalms, and a number of fascinating biblical texts and commentaries.

insidedead This beautifully produced book includes copious full colour and black and white prints and come complete in a sturdy protective sleeve. An ideal gift or pure self-indulgence!

cj-books-etc is pleased to offer a volume of this important book for £19.75 with FREE delivery to UK addresses.
