The History of Scriptural Reasoning

Scriptural Reasoning grew by accident... and through friendships between Jews, Muslims and Christians.

SR began in the early 1990s as Textual Reasoning, a university-based forum for scholars of Modern Jewish Philosophy and scholars of Rabbinic texts to meet and study together. The aim was to grow in understanding of the different disciplines, and to approach key questions about Judaism in the present and future. In the mid 1990's, some Christian friends of members of the Textual Reasoning group sat in on the conversation, and were so attracted by the lively process that they suggested using it as a model for inter-faith conversations. Later, Muslim friends were invited to join the conversation, and Scriptural Reasoning was born.
