chapter  22
Inter-textual trends
Pages 14

It may be appropriate here simply to refer the reader to the recent work of Kenneth Cragg on the inter-textual relations between the Bible and the Qur’an. His A Christian-Muslim Inter-Text Now is an exceptional exploration of the concerns and hopes of the ecumenist in the drawing together of the texts of the two faith communities.1 It is not necessary to repeat Cragg’s discourse; rather here we will focus on only a few particular ideas in the management of scriptures by readers from the faith tradition of the other.
