    In this paper, we suggest that the Bahá'í concept of continuity of revelation could form the basis of a deeper interreligious dialogue with other world religions. We attempt to apply it to central differences in the dialogue between Muslims and Christians, and investigate to what extent this is consistent with current academic scholarship. We conclude that an agenda for interreligious dialogue for this century will be a theophanological one-in particular, we focus on the challenge that the prophetic career of the founder of Islam represents for Christians.
