BELIEVERS AND BROTHERS.

A History of Uneasy Relationship. This new book tells the story of hostility among Jews, Christians and Muslims, while all living together as foe or friend for centuries.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, USA.--(Marketwire - July 5, 2009) - Summarizes the basic causes of hostility, which are a mixture of religion and politics while searching for viable and sustainable solution.
The book comprises of two parts-part-I deals with the faith and practices of the believers-the three Abrahamic traditions and their irreconcilable theological issues and Part II deals with their relation throughout the passage of history. It covers a huge sweep of both time and place. It traces the history of the origins of the three faith traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and goes through their encounters and interactions culminating in their conquests and reconquests. We can read them and see how they made an impact on the human imagination and civilization. The deep cause of their hostility seems hidden beneath the religious and cultural explanations, underlying political and economic rivalries, greed and egoism, hatred and animosities, personal ambitions and vanities, chances and accidents.
The book thinks that inter-faith understanding for peaceful coexistence is a minimal need of our time. It is not the same thing as love or friendship. To the contrary, it is an expression of distance, an acknowledgment of boundaries that will remain. It is informed by an attitude of "live and let live". Coexistence is an ideal without illusions. In a pluralistic society, ethnic and cultural differences are not abolished. They are legitimized, and society strives to guarantee that the law will be blind to them.
The book is available in paperback and eBook formats from the publisher, www.authorhouse.com/bookstore or from other anchor bookstores, like Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, Booksandbooks.com, Waterstones.com.uk, etc.
