About In The Spirit Of St. Francis And The

Product Description A guide for Catholics and Muslims on how to reach greater understanding of the other s tradition in order to work together to end social injustice This book takes on a specific challenge: We all, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, have a choice. Either we allow our fears to bear us along towards what could eventually become a war of apocalyptic dimensions. Or we can rouse ourselves from our fearful obsessions and search for ways not only to reverse this negative trend but also, and most importantly, to focus the world s energies on achieving peace and human flourishing (from the Preface). Taking up the story of the peaceful encounter between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Malek al-Kamil, the authors attempt to increase understanding between Christians and Muslims and to demonstrate how Christians and Muslims can work together for social justice. Basic tenets of both Christians and Muslims are described using clear, accessible language intended for general readers. After demonstrating how both the Bible and Qur an call for actions that promote the common good and love of neighbor, Dardess and Mich suggest practical ways for Muslims and Chrstians to come together to implement specific programs of social justice. About the Author George Dardess lives in Rochester, NY. He is a member of the Muslim Catholic Alliance of Rochester and the author of two recent books on Muslim-Christian dialogue: Meeting Islam: A Guide for Christians (Paraclete, 2005) and Do We Worship the Same God: Comparing the Bible and the Qur an (St. Anthony Messenger, 2006). George is an ordained deacon. He has a master s in theology but his doctorate is in literature. Marvin L. Krier Mich is the director of Social Policy at the Catholic Family Center, a regional office of Catholic Charities in Rochester. He is also president of the Greater Rochester Community of Churches. His books include Catholic Social Teaching and Movements (Twenty-Third, 1998) and The Challenge and Spirituality of Catholic Social Teaching (Sower Books, 2005). He earned a Ph.D. and licentiate in theology at the Alphonsian Academy in Rome.
