If Christians and Muslims are to live in peace, encouraging one another to grow in holiness and working together for the good of all God's creation, they must move beyond politicized and often negative images of one another. Monastic/Muslim dialogue-issuing from friendship and focused on revelation, prayer, and witness-is an important component in this effort. Indeed, it is essential.

Monastic Interreligious Dialogue is a commission of the Benedictine Confederation that promotes and coordinates dialogue between Catholic monastic men and women and spiritual practitioners of other religious traditions. The organization invited Iranian Shi'a Muslims and Christian monastics to share their faith in a revealing God, their understanding and practice of prayer, and their desire to be witnesses to the world of divine mercy and justice. This book invites readers to listen in and learn from their conversation.

Two special features of this volume make it particularly useful: it presents the Shi'ite perspective with which even those who know Islam well are less familiar; it deals with spiritual topics, like meditation and prayer, which are often neglected. In this book, we find monks and Muslims learning from one another and sharing what they have discovered, thus encouraging all of us on the way of dialogue.Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, Apostolic Nuncio to Egypt and Delegate to the League of Arab States
Share this book with a friend. Witness how serious Muslims and monks share face to face, each from their own tradition. We treasure each other's Way to God.Sister Mary Margaret Funk
Our Lady of Grace Monastery Beech Grove, Indiana
