The Hebrew Bible

This part of the book explores the four scriptural traditions: the Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and Christian, and the way in which they are interpreted by theologians. The chapter attempts to articulate and reconceptualize existing beliefs by a positive interaction with those of others. The Jewish tradition is one of the oldest, from which sprang Christian and Muslim views. Tracing the history of this tradition should give a greater understanding of some of the strands of belief which continue to shape later formulations, and which may significantly influence them.
