“The need for well-informed and nuanced dialogue between Christians and Muslims has never been more important.” So begins A Muslim Sage Among Peers, a series of dialogues between Christian scholars and the ideas of Fethullah Gülen, one of modern Islam’s pre-eminent scholars. Featuring essays by Christian thinkers – both Catholic and Protestant – like Thomas Michel and Paul Weller, the book is an effort to show that we are not living through “a clash of civilizations,” as some have forecast, but are instead blessed with the opportunity to build rich, multicultural societies. To combat violence and discord, scholars like Gulen believe that we must “know each other,” as the Quran commands.
