Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Bible in Arab Christianity contains the table of contents. The study of the Bible in Arab Christianity under early Islam is in great part the study of the experience of Arab Christians in this period and of their constant awareness of having to defend the origins and intellectual probity of their beliefs against the challenges of the vigorous new faith that sought to overthrow them. The book examines the use of scriptural references in a group of Christian texts whose authors are aware of Islam that can also be dated to the Umayyad period.
