Dispatches from the Faultline Between Christianity and Islam
Malise Ruthven and Eliza Griswold in conversation.
The tenth parallel is a geographical and ideological front line where Christianity and Islam collide. On both sides of the line, the religions and their people are experiencing reawakenings of faith.
Eliza Griswold, an award-winning investigative journalist, has travelled the space between the equator and the tenth parallel, exploring the meanings and ramifications of this reawakening. Her book, The Tenth Parallel, examines the conflicts over religion, nationhood and natural resources that will remake the world in the years to come.
Malise Ruthven is internationally recognised for his work on Muslim thought and theology, fundamentalism and the social impact of religion and migration. He has been a the forefront of the discussion on the Islamic world and its relations with the predominantly secularised and Christian societies of the West. His latest books are Encounters with Islam: On Religion, Politics and Modernity and Islam: A Very Short Introduction.
