Kenneth Cragg

Fordham University Press

Kenneth Cragg divided his life between the Arab world, North America and Europe as bishop and academic. He has been prolific in writing on Christian-Muslim themes. This chapter addresses themes from the perspective of both faiths, including the relationship of all humanity to God, scripture, human weakness, the relationship between dialogue and witness, and the centrality of Joseph/Yusuf as a common figure of forbearance in our world. The chapter touches on the clarification of terms, the secular encounter, the consequences for power of the migration from Mecca to Medina and the contemporary consequences of violence. Emphasis is given to the importance of the Meccan model for the contemporary global situation and for inter-faith dialogue.

Keywords:   Arab, Christian-Muslim, Mecca, Medina, Inter-faith, Dialogue, Witness, Cragg
