Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are considered kindred religions-holding ancestral heritages and monotheistic belief in common-but there are definitive distinctions between these "Abrahamic" peoples. Shared Stories, Rival Tellings explores the early exchanges of Jews, Christians, and Muslims, and argues that their interactions were dominated by debates over the meanings of certain stories sacred to all three communities. Robert C. Gregg shows how Jewish, Christian, and Muslim interpreters--artists as well as authors--developed their unique and particular understandings of narratives present in the two Bibles and the Qur'an. Gregg focuses on five stories: Cain and Abel, Sarah and Hagar, Joseph and Potiphar's Wife, Jonah and the Whale, and Mary the Mother of Jesus. As he guides us through the often intentional variations introduced into these shared stories, Gregg exposes major issues under contention and the social-intellectual forces that contributed to spirited, and sometimes combative, exchanges among Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Offering deeper insight into these historical moments and their implications for contemporary relations among the three religions, Shared Stories, Rival Tellings will inspire readers to consider--and reconsider--the dynamics of traditional and current social-religious competition.

A boy… A girl… A dinosaur… Laura Kincade is a nerd, and proud of it. She designs rockets, she hunts for dinosaur fossils, and she knows who she is. So when sizzling cowboy Ted Flint bumps into her at a party—literally, with messy results—she instantly feels out of her depth. Could a guy like Ted really be interested in a girl like her? It certainly seems like it when he invites her out to his ranch to take a look at his bone. *ahem* His DINOSAUR bone. Ted has never met anyone like Laura. She’s funny, smart, and adorable. So why is she playing so hard to get? He has a harder time getting her to say yes to a date with him than he has digging up the fossil Laura discovers on his ranch. If not for ice cream, all would be lost. But when the value of the fossil leaks to the community, Ted suddenly finds himself fighting to keep it and the ranch, and Laura too. The Bonnevilles will stop at nothing to claim the discovery for themselves, and Ted and Laura find themselves in danger of losing the battle, and each other too. A boy… A girl… A dinosaur… And love.
