Religion in the 21st Century
I have co-authored a number of popular books on interfaith dialogue, together with a Jewish and a Muslim colleague, in which we have explored a number of themes.

The interfaith movement has often located points in common between the three Abrahamic faiths. (We see no objection to the term "Abrahamic", to which a handful of scholars seems to take exception. All three faiths claim a common ancestry in the patriarch Abraham.) As well as points of agreement, however, we have explored our differences, in what we describe as a "frank but friendly" way.

"Abraham" formed the theme of a series of Lent lectures at Lichfield Cathedral in 2019. For the final session, George Chryssides, Dan Cohn-Sherbok, and Usama Hasan came together to participate in an interfaith conversation about the patriarch.
