    Thus, Islam is quite similar to all previous prophetic traditions that sought to speak directly to human beings and deliver a message. If one is drawing parallels in terms of the structure of the two religions, what corresponds in the Christian scheme to the Qur'an is not the Bible but the person of Christ - it is Christ who is for Christians the revelation of from God. A few points: 1. Such is the gulf between them, that the latter can not know the former unaided. In the eighth century the question began to be discussed whether the Qur'an was the uncreated speech of God, or whether it was a speech which God had created.

    This account of the comparative venture will follow three steps. In the Chicago Declaration was an effort to balance civic responsibility with Christian belief. Smith argues that "scripture" is a historical concept that evolved as westerners came into greater contact with peoples beyond the Abrahamic traditions. My final and most serious criticism of Hick concerns his commitment to universalism.

    However, Arius is careful to emphasize that the Son is not like every other creature. On the other end of the spectrum, we find in Smith a fresh account of current day movements such as emergent Christianity, which is refusing to embrace canon and tradition, community. Through the Enlightenment this concept is further reified, so that by the nineteenth century G. Part of the reason why Islam was conscious about establishing a religious community is because a previous prophet, Mani had already done this.

The basic distinction that most pluralists make between the "ultimate reality" itself, which is absolutely transcendent, and the historical manifestations of this "ultimate reality" does not necessarily reduce the different religions to equally adequate or inadequate manifestations of that ultimate reality.

The most usual error is to suppose on both sides that the roles of Jesus Christ in Christianity and of Muhammad in Islam are comparable… If one is drawing parallels in terms of the structure of the two religions, what corresponds in the Christian scheme to the Qur'an is not the Bible but the person of Christ - it is Christ who is for Christians the revelation of from God.

Life[ edit ] John Hick was born on 20 January to a middle-class family in ScarboroughEngland. For God does not show favoritism.

What Is Scripture?

For that reason, absolute truth claims about God to use Christian language are really truth claims about perceptions of God; that is, claims about the phenomenal God and not the noumenal God.

The various Christian perspectives of other religions are sometimes placed in the categories of pluralism, inclusivism sometimes differentiated from particularismand exclusivism.

It ranges over all the issues of an adequate Christian theology of religions; and even those who are skeptical about its contributors' pluralistic thesis will be challenged and informed by their arguments for it. Even critics of this program will learn much from these daring reflections.

Upholders of the created Qur'an might argue that, if the Qur'an is the uncreated speech of God, we have two eternal and uncreated beings, God and his speech, and have therefore abandoned monotheism. Mary's virginity similarly proves the miracle of Jesus' conception and birth.

Wilfred Cantwell Smith, a lifelong scholar of Islam and its relation to other religions in general and Christianity in particular, pointed out that even comparing Jesus, as he in understood in Christianity, and Mohammed, as he is understood in Islam, is misleading.
