Professor Sidney H. Griffith has spent many years studying the written responses, often in dialogue form, by Christians living in the Middle East in new Islamic empire of the seventh century AD onwards, most of them written in Syriac (a literary version of Aramaic) or later, Arabic. This book represents a lifetime's thinking and reflection on these interchanges - sometimes real debates, often literary and theological constructions. How far they relate to what we now call inter-faith dialogue is a question he also asks. Specialist scholars are already familiar with his important writings, but this book is also very accessible and thought-provoking for anyone interested in the themes of discussion between Christianity and Islam in the first centuries of contact, and the ways in which contemporary Christians reacted.
