Judaism, Christianity, and Islam agree in their fundamental understanding of the world as being created by God. This means the world is reflecting the qualities of its creator but is itself not divine. The three religious traditions have developed similar yet distinct notions of how this basic belief is to be understood. The panel discussion will explore both commonalities and differences in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim understandings of creation.
