Abstract

This short article provides an introduction into the contemporary relevance of Bishop Kenneth Cragg’s work on Islamic Studies in relation to the present and future discussions of Christian-Muslim relations. The article firstly introduces the biographical history of Kenneth Cragg. Next, it focuses on Cragg’s major concerns, including debates of the prophetic identity of Muhammad, the revelation of Qur’an and the controversial status of Jerusalem. Cragg’s scholarship and debates provide rich insights and they helpfully serve as points of departure for initiating China’s Christian-Muslim relations, as well as Christian-Muslim relations in the broader Asian context. Through his sympathetic and serious consideration of Islamic interpretations, Cragg has demonstrated that theological or biblical concepts like ‘encountering’, ‘hospitality’, ‘retrieval’ and ‘God in Christ’ are central to his concern of integrating Islamic studies with Christian mission in the Muslim world, and should be explored in future research in China and in the Asian context.
