Islam, Christianity and the Realms of the Miraculous: A Comparative Exploration

Islam, Christianity and the Realms of the Miraculous: A Comparative Exploration
By Ian Richard Netton
2019 | ISBN: 0748699066 | English | 312 pages | PDF | 1 MB

This new and dynamic approach to the perennially fascinating subject of miracles adopts a strictly anthropological and phenomenological approach. Allowing the miracles to speak for themselves, Ian Richard Netton examines these phenomena in the Islamic and Christian traditions through the lens of narration. What are the stories of the miracles? What are the contexts which gave rise to these miracles and allowed them to garner belief and flourish? Perspectives covered include the views of believers and non-believers alike in these phenomena.

Similarities and differences in content and approach are explored with a primary focus on the five main anthropological topoi of food, water, blood, wood and stone, and cosmology. A range of intertextual elements in both these Islamic and Christian traditions are discerned.
