Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A record of the fourth Building Bridges seminar held in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, May 15-18, 2005, an annual symposium on Muslim-Christian relations cosponsored by the president's office of Georgetown University and the Archbishop's Office of the Church of England. Includes 15 chapters examining three topics: faith and national identity in Christian and Muslim perspective; governance and justice in Christian and Muslim perspective; and caring together for the world we share. This volume presents the texts of the public lectures which addressed each of these topics, together with regional presentations on issues of citizenship, religious believing and belonging, and the relationship between government and religion--both from the immediate situation of Bosnia-Herzegovina and from three context further afield: Britain, Malaysia, and West Africa. Participants included Tariq Ramadan, professor of Islam Studies, University of Freibourg; John Langan, SJ, Joseph Cardinal Bernardin Professor of Catholic Social Thought, Georgetown; Frances Young, Edward Cadbury Professor of Theology, University of Birmingham; and Mona Siddiqui, senior lecturer in Arabic and Islamic Studies, Glasgow University. The first three Building Bridges seminars were published by Church House, the trade publishing arm of the Church of England.

Book News Annotation:

Scholars mostly of religion and mostly from Sarajevo or Western Europe address the themes believers and citizens: faith and national identity, seeking the common good: governance and justice, and caring together for the world. The 16 papers explore such topics as the identity of Christians in church and in state, Islamic views of the collective, and the challenge of poverty.

Synopsis:

Building a Better Bridge is a record of the fourth Building Bridges seminar held in Sarajevo in 2005 as part of an annual symposium on Muslim-Christian relations cosponsored by Georgetown University and the Archbishop of Canterbury that deals with issues of citizenship, religious belonging, and the relationship between government and religion. Both Christian and Muslim scholars ask key questions in addressing the issue of the common good. How do we approach the civic sphere as believers in particular faiths and as citizens of mixed societies? How do we accommodate our commitment to religious values with acknowledgment of human disagreement, and how can this be expressed in models of governance and justice? Michael Ipgrave and his contributors do not claim to provide definitive answers to these questions, but further a necessary dialogue and show that the acknowledgment of one another as people of faith is the surest ground on which to build trust, friendship, and cooperation.
