Summary

Composed mainly of primary source readings, but including important secondary sources well, Readings in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam is designed to provide both chronological and topical coverage of each religion. The readings are grouped under six headings: Scripture and Tradition, Monotheism, Authority and Community, Worship and Ritual, Ethics, and Religion and Political Order. Readings for all three religions are arranged to allow for the identification of similarities and differences among the traditions. A brief introduction sets each reading in its time and place and, in many cases, provides commentary on the significance of the material. Readings in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam is designed to supplement lectures and textbooks; is accessible to those just embarking on their study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; provides a comprehensive basis for further study of all three religious traditions; and balances short, pointed excerpts with longer, detailed readings.
