I definitely agree with the suggestion to look at the scholastics- particularly Aquinas and Scotus (even though I am more of a Platonic Stoic myself). I would also recommend this blog for somebody interested in general scholasticism: Edward Feser. Feser's books, in particular Aquinas and Neo-Scholastic Essays are both wonderfully written and full of content. And while I'm rambling, there is a pretty much Catholic forum which I frequent with (practically) no idiots, just content.

Ultimately, the basic theistic model for Christianity, Judaism, and Islam is all the same, setting aside trinitarian doctrine (which even Aquinas fumbles with).
