Abstract and Keywords

In the United States today, it would be dangerous to attempt to understand Muslim-Christian relations as simply positive or negative or even to characterize trends in dialogue and relationships as being polarized. This chapter examines the current context of Muslim-Christian dialogue in the United States; explores the intersection of the US domestic context and the global context to demonstrate that each impacts the other in contexts of Muslim-Christian dialogue and that events in each setting have significant influence on the other; and provides examples of initiatives that offer hope for relations and dialogue between American Muslims and American Christians.

Keywords: Muslim-Christian relations, interfaith relations, American Muslims, American Christians, dialogue, global, initiatives
