Our world is fraught with horrific expressions of violence and injustice, which are often justified by religious rhetoric. 'Islam, Peace, and Social Justice: A Christian Perspective' is a relevant, comprehensive, and empathetic examination of some of these social-justice challenges within the Muslim world. Sadly, many non-Muslims only learn about Muslim views on social-justice issues from biased and inaccurate media portrayals. This book, written by a non-Muslim friend of Muslims, offers a more sympathetic and nuanced treatment, focusing especially on points of convergence and divergence between Islam and Christianity and exploring ways in which social-justice partnerships can be forged between adherents of these two great faith traditions.

The book is filled with concrete and specific examples - often quoting directly from the Qur'an and the Bible as well as the newspaper - and is practical in its approach rather than loftily sermonic. The work seeks above all to foster more substantive and constructive contexts of interfaith dialogue and action for the purposes of addressing injustice.
