"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 analysis 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.

"Astute commentary from philosophers, theologians, and jurists turns this stunning compilation of Muslim and Christian sources, classical and modern, into a working instrument to clarify vexed notions of justice and of rights from the comparative perspective our fractured world sorely needs."-David Burrell, Hesburgh Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and Theology, University of Notre Dame "The most critical contribution of [this volume] is its honest assessment of historical precedents of both Islamic and Christian traditions when entangled in politics that continue to thwart sincere efforts by leaders of both communities in advancing mutual respect and commitment to uphold inherency of human dignity today. Some essays will serve as essential templates for understanding the challenges that face future relationships and cooperation between the two dominant faith communities promoting basic freedoms of all human beings regardless of their color, creed, or sex."-Abdulaziz Sachedina, Francis Myers Ball Professor of Religious Studies, University of Virginia
