This scholarly and dispassionate study of the sacred scriptures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam explores many aspects of the beliefs and practices by which they have had - and still have - such importance in both East and West. The origins, credal significance, selection, presentation, roles in institutional ritual and daily life of the scriptures are all addressed. The Epilogue overviews significant contrasts between the three canons and their perceptions by the faithful of the three religions. With glossary, illustrations, and index.
