In this article, Dr Kalin analyzes the application of the concept of "People of the Book" and discusses the grounds and limits of tolerance and intolerance towards other religions in the Islamic tradition. The focus is Judaism and Christianity. The author argues that, while Islam does not claim a monopoly on belief in God and leading a virtuous life, it sets strict conditions for accepting a faith as a legitimate path that one can follow to reach salvation. The tensions between the oneness and universality of the divine message on the one hand and the multiplicity of human communities on the other is also discussed.
