"Scriptural Reasoning has opened a window for me that nothing else could have done onto others' faith while at the same time enriching my own: thank you. Because we are all from so many different backgrounds and everyone is so commited to friendly engagement I always leave blessed and encouraged."
- Janice Moore
"Scriptural Reasoning is a genuine opportunity for committed religious people to engage in inter-faith practice without undermining particularity: here is a way to deepen one’s own faith commitment and deepen one’s engagement with members of other faiths simultaneously."
- Professor Tom Greggs
"I really enjoyed it; there was time to speak, and time to refrain from speaking."
- Peter Stockton
"Scriptural Reasoning helped to show me the presuppositions and interpretive strategies that I bring to the text without realising it. Studying with those of other faiths gave me insight into other possible interpretations, and helped me better to understand the traditions and individuals who hold them."
- Suzie Miller
"It helps me think dig deeper into my own tradition, often provoked by the inquires of my fellow Abrahamites. I go back to read more deeply about how and why I understand texts the way I do. It facilitates deep reflection of my scripture in a way that doesn't happen when I am with others of my own faith, because we take so many things for granted."
- Omar Shaukat
"SR allows me get to know many of the ideas, events and personalities from the Qur'an from a different perspective. It also allows me to share my beliefs and the teachings of my book with the People of the Book. More importantly, it creates a space where we can come together and find that there are so many things we share with other people, that we have that 'Kalimaatin Sawaa'in', common grounds, with people of other faith traditions, upon which we can build a better future".
- Hassanain Govani
"SR is a place where to welcome and be hosted at the same time. What has been important for me was getting to know my SR colleagues more than their opinion. What we share when we enter the SR room is the text which is in front of us. That means that I do my best to read it with the other group members, to think about it with them, to benefit from the other’s reading of it without thinking that we have to come to a common understanding."
