Kelber, Werner & Sanders, Paula. "Oral Tradition in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam: Introduction." Oral Tradition 25:1 (2010), 3-6.
Kelber and Sanders collaborated on a conference related to orality and literate elements in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This conference led to the contents of Oral Tradition 25:1 (Kelber & Sanders 2010, 3). The ideas presented in the conference and its papers suggest that, counter to some popular traditional wisdom, it is inappropriate to call Judaism, Christianity, and Islam "religions of the book" due to the extensive interrelationship between orality, scribality, and memory (Kelber & Sanders 2010, 3).
The papers presented in this issue of Oral Tradition have retained any references to other works presented or suggested for presentation in the conference, even if not published in the journal. This was done to suggest an ongoing dialog (Kelber & Sanders 2010, 4).
