              Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) methods, also known as likelihood-free inference methods, can be used to solve very complex ( computationally intractable ) problems. A huge amount of research has been conducted in this area over the last decade and a varied suite of algori...thms, models, techniques, and diagnostics have seen widespread application at the forefront of scientific research in a broad array of disciplines. This book presents an overview of ABC methods with a practical focus through lots of real examples and an R package for their implementation.

              Jesus is a revered messenger of God for Muslims and Lord and Savior for Christians. How can Muslims and Christians relate to each other when this figure from the past attracts them yet drives them apart? Jesus is the very center of the Christian faith, but for Muslims he is a fai...thful witness to God, who is central to Islam. In the twenty-first century, is it possible for Muslims and Christians to relate to each other around him? This book is an attempt to bring together two representative voices from Muslim and Christian communities to talk about Jesus. Ibrahim is a Sunni Sufi Muslim who has studied Christianity and has been active as an academic in the Western world. Paul is an Evangelical Protestant who has lived in the Muslim world and has been engaged in teaching religious studies in the West. The conversation begins with the conception of Jesus and ends with his return from heaven and deals with his earthly work in between. His miraculous activity, his teaching, and the titles he has been given are considered in detail, and differences over the ending of Jesus' life are debated. Jesus in Muslim-Christian Conversation builds upon the classic genres of Christian Arabic theology by constructing a theoretical dialogue between a Muslim and a Christian. The result is an exchange that is as lucid and engaging as it is informative and carefully researched. Mark Beaumont is the perfect guide to help readers navigate this discussion of theological ideas, drawing his readers towards greater understanding around the person and work of Jesus in Christianity and Islam. --Charles Tieszen, SIS Adjunct Professor of Islamic Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary Mark Beaumont is Research Associate at London School of Theology, UK. He has published books and articles on Christian-Muslim relations, especially on theological concerns.
