Love in Christianity and Islam
The seedbed of hatred is ignorance of the other; the seedbed of love is knowledge of the other. In this little book, the author makes an important contribution to the understanding of two faiths that have had considerable difficulty in knowing and loving each other down the centuries. At this critical moment of history, when believers are often stereotyped as fanatics by the media, Mahnaz Heydarpoor takes us back to what is essential in both Islam and Christianity: love. And as she herself is deeply committed to dialogue with Christians, what is written in these pages is based, not just on theory, but on practice.
