Muslim-Christian Relations Observed: Comparative Studies from Indonesia and the Netherlands.

Edited by Volker Kuster and Robert Setio.

Leipzig: Evangelische Verlagsanstalt, 2014.

Pp. vii, 391. Paperback 34 [euro]/ $42.

The volume will be of interest to students of Muslim-Christian relations, students of Islam and Christianity in Asia, as well as students of religion in modern Europe, religion and gender, and interreligious dialogue.

These essays provide a revealing glimpse into the complex factors that shape the religious identities of Muslims and Christians in various contexts. The essays in section 2 ("Religion and State") look at the differing relationships between religion and politics in Indonesia and in Holland. Of special interest is a discussion of the political involvements of religious groups in Indonesia since 1998, and a discussion of the official statement on Islam published by the Protestant Church in the Netherlands in 2011. …
