In this study, Robert Reilly provides a careful and critical assessment of the prospects for dialogue between the Catholic Church and Islam. In particular, he highlights the problems for such dialogue presented by their different views of God and of humanity. The author argues that dialogue between Christians and Muslims can be meaningful and fruitful, but only if both affirm a God who is reason, and that human beings possess inalienable rights.
