Description

In this concluding chapter I wish to bring together the important strands of this study on a common theology of humanity and creation for Muslims and Christians. I begin with a short case study that illustrates the practical outworking of a number of principles emanating from this project. Then I list the main ¿ndings of the preceding chapters and some of the questions that will need to be kept in mind in the continuing conversation between members of both groups determined to act together as God’s trustees for the common good, both locally and globally.
