Justice and Rights is a record of the fifth "Building
Bridges" seminar held in Washington, DC in 2006 (an annual
symposium on Muslim-Christian relations cosponsored by Georgetown
University and the Church of England). This volume examines justice
and rights from Christian and Muslim perspectives-a topic of
immense relevance for both faiths in the modern world, but also
with deep roots in the core texts of both traditions.
Leading scholars examine three topics: scriptural foundations,
featuring analyses of Christian and Muslim sacred texts; evolving
traditions, exploring historical issues in both faiths with an
emphasis on religious and political authority; and the modern
world, analyzing recent and contemporary contributions from
Christianity and Islam in the area of freedom and human rights.
