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.

Jews celebrate Passover, Christians Easter, and Muslims ask God to send a table from Heaven where the faithful dine and find sustenance (Qur’an, Surah 5).

Here this previously unrecognized bond is described in book form for the first time.

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.
