Abstract

Miroslav Volf's Allah: A Christian Response is an important book that advances Christian-Muslim dialogue. This article outlines Volf's thesis, critically evaluates some key claims made in the book, and examines some of the methodological presuppositions in Volf's project. It also seeks to situate Volf's claim about the "same God" within a Christian typology of "revelation" so that the significance of his claims might be better understood.
