ReviewsEinboden’s The Qur’ān and Kerygma opens the door for new opportunities in the study of Christian-Muslim relations. While recent scholarship on the Qurʾān has focused on its ‘context’, ‘biblical subtext’, and biblical impressions in the Qurʾān, Einboden’s fresh study flips this relationship by investigating the impressions of the Qurʾān on Arabic Christian commentaries and translations of the Bible. The Qur’ān and Kerygma provides exciting new insights into the intertextuality of the Bible and the Qurʾān.

The Qur'an and Kerygma is wondrously creative and an intellectual delight of the very highest order. Jeffery Einboden has given us a truly exciting study of the Qur’an’s influence in the so-called West. Eschewing humdrum and stale constraints, Einboden addresses notions of "the Bible" and "the Qur’an", their identities, cross-fertilizations and, above all, their profound kerygmatic kinship. The result is utterly dazzling. The supremely diligent and perspicacious chapter on Northrop Frye is destined to impact both Biblical and Literature Studies. Words with power, one might say.
