Peace Be upon You: The Story of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish Coexistence


C-SPAN has the video Peace Be upon You.

Zachary Karabell talked about his book Peace Be upon You: The Story of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish Coexistence, published by Knopf. Mr. Karabell traces the historical instances of peaceful coexistence between Muslim, Christian, and Jewish people. The author contended that throughout the past fourteen centuries the different faiths have found common ground; from peaceful debate amongst scholars in the courts of the caliphs in Baghdad to medieval Spain where Jewish sages, Muslim philosophers, and Christian monks translated the meaning of God together. The author argued that the current state of religious tensions are solvable if one studies the past. Mr. Karabell responded to questions from the audience.

I just posted about this video in the previous post Why Some ‘Fauxgressives’ Are Against the Palestinian BDS Movement, but this book and this C-SPAN video are so important that I felt this deserved a separate post. It will be easier for me to find this in the future if I have a post with the full title of the book.
