The Prophetology of Dialogue: A conceptual analysis of the lingua franca of interfaith Dialogue in the twenty first century, from a Christian and Muslim perspective

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

The nature of prophethood and prophetology, as explained by both Jesus and Muhammad,1 involves engaging with peoples of other faiths and traditions. Therefore, just as prophets are needed for spiritual and moral guidance, they also act as ideal role models for dealing with other people and faiths. Without their guidance, dialogue will be more problematic. It becomes imperative, therefore, to examine the theological understanding, reasons and the motivations through the institution of prophethood and prophetology in order to gauge and better appreciate their responses accordingly in the twenty-first century. From the Christian-Muslim perspectives, John Paul II and Fethullah Gülen are arguably the key drivers of dialogue in the twenty-first century.
