"The writers of this thoughtful and wise book take us gently by the hand and show us, `Here is the one God, the God of us all, right here in the Quran.' This message is actually quite good news, although it challenges the assumption that God is wholly owned by Christianity, or any one religion. I hope that Out of Darkness Into Light is read widely and taken to heart so that we all can widen our circles of embrace and recognize the God of love and compassion in more people and places." ----Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and Archbishop Emeritus of Capetown, South Africa
"A magnificently engaging reflection on faith by authors who adhere to the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions. Elegantly written, highly readable, and eminently fulfilling for anyone interested in understanding what light Judaism, Christianity and Islam offer today." ----Amir Hussain, Associate Professor of Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University and Co-chair of the Contemporary Islam Group of the American Academy of Religion<br /><br />
"An exciting book for those who want to explore more deeply the spiritual teachings of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism . . . inspires a healing conversation of spirit among the three Abrahamic faiths and provides nourishment for our souls and greater hope for peaceful and loving coexistence in our world." ----Ebrahim Moosa, Professor of Islamic Studies, Duke University<br /><br />
"This marvellous book is an example of the theology that is done best when it is done comparatively. Out of Darkness into Light offers new insights for beginners as well as the most seasoned reader of scripture."

A work of profound beauty that touches and nourishes the inner most being every time it is read. Out of Darkness should be required reading for every seminary student, no matter what their religion. This is a great source book for interfaith dialogue.
Rev. R. M. Peluso
Editor-in-chief, Interfaith Today
This book is full of wishful thinking by Humanists who want to force the big five religions under their umbrella, cutting off whatever parts of these religions that don't fit inside Humanism. Exclusive devotion and the supernatural are two that they war against. They wish to twist all holy books to agree with them. They have had success with some versions of the Bible, but if they try that with the Koran and the Bhagav Gita, there would be a war.
Cobra-phobia is justified and reasonable.
