Abstract:Most of the papers in this collective volume were presented at a Procmura (Programme for Christian-Muslim Relations in Africa) Area Advisers/African Christian Islamicists Consultation held at Jeffkings Palace Hotel, Frafraha, Accra, Ghana from 15-20 July, 2002. Organized under the theme 'Christian-Muslim relations in Africa: challenges and opportunities', the consultation sought to share experiences on constructive engagements for peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims in the continent, and worrying engagements that turn Christians and Muslims into bad neighbours. Contributions: African churches and interfaith relations: food for thought, by Johnson A. Mbillah; The shar¯i'a debate in the Northern States of Nigeria and its implications for West Africa subregion, by Josiah Idowu-Fearon; The shar¯i'a and national unity in Nigeria, by Emmanuel O. Oyelade; Shar¯i'a: historical and contemporary perspectives in the Sudan, by Samuel N. Ador; Dhimm¯i status in Islam from a historical perspective with implications for present-day Africa, by John A. Chesworth; Dialogue for peaceful coexistence between Christians and Muslims: the sociological dimension, by Catherine Jarra; Ivory Coast: religious groups involvement with the Forum for National Reconciliation, by Corneille Verduijn. A Communiqué issued after the consultation concludes the volume. [ASC Leiden abstract]
