By examining the North American theologian George A. Lindbeck's modern classic »The Nature of Doctrine«, Andreas Herrmann attempts to clarify fundamental questions lying between Christianity and Islam.
Islam is a special case among non-Christian religions. What sets the Koran apart from these is its reference to Christian tradition. From the outset, the contemporaneous closeness yet distance between the two led to irritations that are still present to this day. How then are the Koran's reception of biblical figures and its criticism of central Christian doctrines to be viewed? By examining the North American theologian George A. Lindbeck's modern classic »The Nature of Doctrine«, Andreas Herrmann attempts to clarify these fundamental questions lying between Christianity and Islam. The perspectives revealed are discussed in the context of various dialogue topics, showing that Lindbeck's concepts, inspired by the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein, can provide new impulses for an understanding of Islam as a post-Christian religion.
