Reclaiming Beauty for the Good of the World: Muslim & Christian Creativity as Moral Power

$24.33 USD

Here is a truly fresh approach to interfaith dialogue: through the creativity of artists inspired by their Muslim or Christian faith, and through the creative lives of people who give a human face to the beauty at the core of both faiths.

The book is divided into three Parts.

  1. Part One shows the centrality of God’s Beauty in both faiths.
  2. Part Two presents the sacred arts of both religions, with special attention to contemporary Christian and Muslim artists’ honoring of God’s Beauty.
  3. Part Three focuses on Christians’ and Muslims’ honoring of God’s Beauty in their behavior. Again, we focus on contemporary examples.
After each Part we include a dialogue between a representative Christian and Muslim in which the two religions reflect, honestly and joyfully, on their similarities and differences.
