A History of Christian-Muslim Relations

The relationship between the Christian and Muslim worlds has been a long and tortuous one. Over the course of the centuries the balance of power has swung in pendulum fashion--at times the initiative seems to have lain with the Muslim community, with the Christian world simply being compelled to react to developments outside itself, while at other points the opposite has b ...more

Great book. Very good at being succinct but also at addressing the length and breadth of the issues. For such a mammoth goal, Goddard did admirably. Also, steered clear of polemical, biased, or over-Eurocentric viewpoints, although he is first and foremost a Brit. Not sure if he reads Arabic or not, but he is at least sensitive to it. I would recommend this one to any of my friends who are interested in the Middle East or in modern Christianity and its relationship with the world.

I read this for a graduate level class called History of the Christian-Muslim Encounter. The book is a solid historical overview, but since it was written in 2000 (pre-9/11) it lacks a considerable amount of perspective. Overall, it's a good starting point for historical study.

buku ini membuat gue dapet gambaran bagaimana kristen memandang islam :D
ternyata ada berbagai macam pandangan tentang kemunculan islam... misalnya gue abru tahu kalau ada kristen yang menganggap islam itu anti kristus atau malah bidah dalam kristen
:o
seru karena membuka perspektif gue...
gue rasa hugh goddard cukup baik dalam berusaha objektif memaparkan tentang islam dan kristen :)
tapi guerasa porposi penceritaan islam dan kristennya kurang berimbang.., bagian kristennya lebih banyak.. entah kare

Ini buku keren, yang bisa mempertemukan secara tajam sejarah Islam-Kristen dalam porsi yang proporsional. Buku ini membongkar lipatan-lipatan lini masa lalu yang tertutup oleh kabut kontroversi kedua kepentingan yang sama-sama ingin menutupi sejarah buruknya masing-masing demi legitimasi dan otoritas.

Keren poll pokonya.

This author gives a very good overview of Christian Islamic relations from the beginning thru till the end of the 20th century. For a topic that has the potential to be so polemical he is quite fair in the presentation of each side. For anyone who wants a better understanding of where each side is coming from.
