Muslim-Christian Encounters in Africa (Islam in Africa, 6)
by Benjamin F Soares  (Editor)
This timely collection offers new perspectives on Muslim-Christian encounters in Africa. Working against political and scholarly traditions that keep Muslims and Christians apart, the essays in this multidisciplinary volume locate African Muslims and Christians within a common analytical frame. In a series of historical and ethnographic case studies from across the African continent, the authors consider the multiple ways Muslims and Christians have encountered each other, borrowed or appropriated from one another, and sometimes also clashed. Contributors recast assumptions about the making and transgressing of religious boundaries, Christian-Muslim relations, and conversion. This engaging collection is a long overdue attempt to grapple with the multi-faceted and changing encounters of Muslims and Christians in Africa.
Editorial Reviews

This diverse set of authors also exhibits the necessary historical depth, contemporary research, and critical reflection for balanced treatment of such a critical topic.' Rosalind I.J. Hackett, President, "International Association for the History of Religions," Distinguished Professor, University of Tennessee, Knoxville. '["Muslim-Christian Encounters in Africa"] stellt eine abwechslungsreiche und empfehlenswerte Zusammenstellung wissenschaftlich relevanter Artikel zu christlich-muslimischen Begegnungen in Afrika dar.' Bjorn Zimprich, "DAVO-Nachrichten"
