Renowned scholar Miroslav Volfs controversial proposal is that Muslims and Christians do worship the same Godthe only God. As Volf reveals, warriors in the clash of civilizations have used religionseach with its own god and worn as a badge of identityto divide and oppose, failing to recognize the one God whom Muslims and Christians understand in partly different ways.

Allah: A Christian Response (2011) is Volf's major work engaging Islam. The book is an exercise in "political theology"; it explores the possibilities of peaceful co-existence of Muslims and Christians "under the same political roof," rather than the merits of Islam and Christianity as systems of salvation (an area in which there is substantially more divergence between the two religions than in regard to moral values).
De Chergé had become convinced of the primary claim of Miroslav Volf’s book Allah: A Christian Response – that Muslims and Christians both worship the one, true God. As a consequence of this Volf goes on to claim that the significant extent to which both faiths have a common understanding of both the nature of God and how to respond to God in worship, not only respectful dialogue but mutual cooperation should ensue. That Allah fits within the context of Volf’s overarching project is important to note, as this most challenging and ambitious of the four books may alienate admirers of his previous work if its relationships to the others aren’t recognised.
