Im Fluss der Dinge 
Karl-Josef Kuschel
In the Flow of Things
Hermann Hesse and Bertolt Brecht in the Dialogue with Buddha, Lao Tzu and Zen

»Under heaven nothing is more soft and yielding than water. And yet, for attacking the solid and strong, nothing is better; it has no equal« (Tao Te Ching). Hermann Hesse and Bertolt Brecht are both world-famous German-language writers of the 20th century. As different as their lives and works may be, they are connected by their interest in the spiritual world of India, China and Japan. A dialogue with the great figures of the Asian world, with Buddha and Lao Tsu, has found expression in the works of both. And even if the results were different, both of them also mastered the special art of transforming the foreign into one`s own.

Observations of a rabbi
With a preface by Margot Käßmann

Walter Homolka is one of the most prolific representatives of contemporary Judaism in Germany and the founding rector of the first rabbinical seminary in Germany following the Holocaust.

Von Abba bis Zorn Gottes 
Paul Petzel / Norbert Reck (eds.)
From Abba to Zealots
Understanding Judaism and clarifying misperceptions

In the 20th century, the major Christian churches took a new look at Judaism, and at the highest levels. At the same time, however, some of the old generalizations still persist in worship services and in schools: from the supposedly angry God of the Old Testament to the Pharisees as the embodiment of petty rule-followers.

Die Bibel im Koran 
Karl-Josef Kuschel
The Bible in the Quran
Foundations for interreligious discussion

This book is a scholarly and personal summation of Karl-Josef Kuschel’s two decades of study of the Bible and the Quran, newly revised and most importantly expanded to include the results of the latest scholarly research on the Quran. Thorough knowledge of the basics is a precondition for a culture of exchange between Jews, Christians, and Muslims that is based on mutual respect and allows trust to develop. This book by a dedicated scholar, which ranges from confrontation to integrated thinking, is itself an important contribution to this goal.

Under the Veil of Freedom
What Islam Can Contribute to a Truly Emancipated Image of Women

It might seem absurd that Islam, of all things, has something to contribute to the image of an emancipated woman. In fact, it is considered one of the last bastions of the suppression and degradation of women. Khola Maryam Hübsch defends herself against this view of Islam, which she considers false and shortsighted.

Muslim Humor

Islam is well acquainted with humor, and Muslims can laugh! This book proves it. This collection of Muslim jokes, collected from many countries and varied time periods, reflects the variety within Islam – from Mullah Nasreddin tall tales that stem from Persian to the trickster Goha in the Arab Near East to contemporary jokes.
