The Rt Rev Kenneth Cragg

Telegraph, The Rt Rev Kenneth Cragg, 14 November 2012 "The Rt Rev Kenneth Cragg, who has died aged 99 , was a distinguished scholar who, more than anyone else in the 20th century, helped Christians to a deeper understanding of, and a wider sympathy for, the religious faiths of Muslims and Jews." He was an influential writer (some of the earliest books I read on Islam were by him, such as 'Call of the Minaret'). I once shared a platform with him at a conference.
