Theorizing both faiths.

Reader comment on item: Comparing Religions through Law: Judaism and Islam

Submitted by Mouloud Alouane (United Kingdom), Jan 29, 2005 at 16:09

I read the introduction with great interest. However, one similar and very challenging characteristic these faiths have-in common- is the attempt to theorize them- islam or Judaism-They both represent problamatic issues for an outsider researcher, in particular ,and for, an insider researcher, in general. I think it is of paramount significance to underline the paradox of this phenomenon as the researchers, sometimes misunterpret or misrepresent both faiths.
