Chapter Summary

Tanakh. New Testament. Qurʾan. Most often, studies of these works appear alone. Today's geopolitical global economy of ideas and markets flies in the face of any cloistering of sacred texts. One antidote to the individualized or paired groupings of sacred text studies would be to anthologize an equal number of studies from each of the three sacred texts. Essays could be organized by sacred text. First, Tanakh. Next, New Testament. Then, Qurʾan. Tanakh-New Testament-Qurʾan punctuates the synergy between the three works experienced by the contributors in this book. To establish a sense of community in the discussion of these three sacred texts, six themes organize the conversation. Each theme represents a layer of the universal human experience.

Keywords: New Testament; Qurʾan; Tanakh
