Jeffrey Cohen, Dexter Duncan
Issued Date: 16 Oct 2015


This article is a response to the personal reflection of Mohammad Ali Hijazi titled The Ground of Our Being: Muslim heritage, identity and connectedness (located within this edition of HSCC). As a critique of Hijazi’s article, the authors (a Jew and a Muslim) provide a collaborative rejoinder that addresses five main issues, namely, the historical relationship between Islam and non-Muslims, victimhood experiences by Muslims and other migrants, pastoral issues and evangelism, issues of social justice and spiritual care to Muslims.
