This is the first, and most referred to, Christian systemic theology to make clear for the Church the relevance of the continuing existence of the Jewish people to every aspect of its theology. The three volumes set out to correct a major and central deficiency in the field: that the continuing existence of Israel, the people of God and the people of Jesus, whose ancestors produced by far the largest part of the Church's Bible, and who have lived by the covenant of those Scriptures through the ages, has been either ignored or treated negatively. A Theology of the Jewish-Christian Reality continues to stimulate fresh thinking about the foundations for responsible theological reflection. This second volume makes an original contribution to the Church's theology by drawing on the insights and discoveries of Jewish thought and life. Van Buren argues that God's election of the Jewish people as his witnesses remains in force and calls the Church to listen to that witness.

Fazlur Rahman's Islam is aptly titled, in that this slim volume constitutes an incisive and surprisingly comprehensive history and analysis of Islam—its history, its conflicts, its legacy—and its prospects. From Mohammed to the late twentieth century, Rahman traces the development of Islam as a religion and, more importantly, as an intellectual tradition, offering both an easily understood introduction to the faith and an impassioned argument for its future direction.

The studies, by one of the most distinguished scholars of antiquity, cover a span of time beginning with the Hasmoneans and the earliest intervention of Roman power in the land of Israel - that is, from the second and first pre-Christian centuries - and extended as far as the third and fourth centuries of the present era. Most of the questions dealt with originate in the inner world of Judaism and Jewish law (halachah). The issues are examined in relation to other factors as well, such as the Hellenistic literature of the Jews, early Christian traditions, and classical culture as a whole.
