Very appropriate for both students researching on dialogue with Muslims, as well as those who are interested in learning about Islamic faith and Muslims. Through the book, one feels the call not only to learn, but also to go beyond socially constructed prejudices; the inspiration to embrace with love and ultimate respect the other, person of other faiths; in Christian-Muslim relationship, to cultivate mutual trust, forgiveness, and reconciliation.
