This is a short, very readable booklet. It comes out of a post 9/11 UK context, and was written for youth leaders as a resource for helping their Christian young people form genuine and fruitful friendships with their Muslim neighbors. Helpful for people of all ages. [BV 4529.2 Y14]
Andrews’ premise is that Christians and Muslims have much to teach and to learn from each other. He considers how the two faiths built on justice, love and peace have nevertheless motivated so much violence throughout their histories. He then looks at violence and how to resist it. This is a challenging and inspiring book. Highly recommended. [BT 7836.6 AND]

Can terrorist attacks by Muslims rightly be called “Islamic terrorism”? Does the problem lies with Islam as a religion, or with Western politics and history–or both?
