Book Launch: Judaism, Christianity and Islam: An Introduction to Monotheism’ written by Amanullah De Sondy, Michelle A. Gonzalez and William S. Green.
Join us for the Irish book launch of ‘Judaism, Christianity and Islam: An Introduction to Monotheism’ written by Amanullah De Sondy, Michelle A. Gonzalez and William S. Green. This new book, published by Bloomsbury UK (October 2020), shows how a shared monotheistic legacy frames and helps explain the commonalities and disagreements among Judaism, Christianity and Islam and their significant denominations in the world today.
The authors will discuss how contemporary geographic and cultural contexts in view of historical foundations shape the expression of monotheism in the three religions. The book delves deep into the religious expressions in Israeli Judaism, Latin American Christianity and British Islam. Topics discussed include scripture, creation, covenant and identity, ritual, ethics, peoplehood and community, redemption, salvation, life after death, gender, sexuality and marriage. Many of the book’s illustrations are from the Chester Beatty collections.
