The Theology of Tariq Ramadan
Number of pages: 184
Tariq Ramadan is the Swiss-born, Oxford-based Muslim theologian whose works (Globalization – Muslim Resistances, The Messenger, Western Muslims and the Future of Islam, Islam the West and the Challenges of Modernity, and To Be a European Muslim) are the subject of intense analysis and debate, especially in Europe.
Ramadan has been described as one of the most influential Muslim theologians in the world today. In this timely book, Gregory Baum assesses the theological insights of Ramadan and presents their points of connection with Catholic social teaching. An insightful, groundbreaking, rare approach to Catholic/Muslim insight and theological dialogue that finds common ground and some surprising areas of theological convergence.
Gregory Baum, professor emeritus at McGill University and the founding editor of The Ecumenist, is the author of many books, including Signs of the Times, Religion and Alienation and Amazing Church (all Novalis).
