“This study of Ibn-Sina, Maimonides, and Thomas Aquinas on the structure and significance of language about God reminds us that such ecumenical dialogue was immensely productive in the Middle Ages, and the author’s perspective suggests how richly rewarding the renewal of such conversations might be for current philosophy among Jews, Christians, and Muslims.” —Bernard McGinn, Naomi Shenstone Donnelley Professor of Historical Theology and the History of Christianity, University of Chicago Divinity School

“Historians, philosophers, theologians, and those concerned with interreligious dialogue will all find this book important.” —George Lindbeck, Pitkin Professor Emeritus of Historical Theology and Religious Studies, Yale University
