Interfaith Marriage: A Concern for Jews, Christians, and Muslims
Interfaith Marriage is the most intense, the most intimate, and the most contested form of interfaith relations. Prof. Ryan, an expert in Christian-Muslim relations with extensive experience in West Africa, repeats at UCI a much-noticed discussion that occurred first in New York with published Jewish and Muslim responses by, respectively, Rabbi Daniel Polish and Prof. Jerusha Tanner Lamptey.
With new responses by:
Prof. Amir Hussain, Loyola Marymount University, author of 'Oil and Water: Two Faiths, One God'
Rabbi Elie Spitz, Congregation B’nai Israel, author of 'Healing from Despair: Choosing Wholeness in a Broken World'.
