Abstract

The author examines the violent worlds within which the three Abrahamic faiths - Judaism, Christianity, and Islam - were born and had their early existence. He then goes on to examine the ways in which Christianity and Islam (out of the three Abrahamic faiths) developed in both peaceful and violent ways. From this historial survey, and a survey of the interactions of Christianity and Islam, the author then points to ways of peaceful co-existence between these two faiths in the contemporary world.
