    DESCRIPTION

    This book touches on certain dynamics regarding the theoretical and cultural basis of the model Fethullah Gulen has developed based on dialogue, tolerance, concurrence among different groups that come from different religions, cultures, and civilizations. Gulen's model focuses on human beings, those who surround all their world with thought and action, and who are directed toward love for God and for creation. It is a prime example of an Islamic viewpoint that condemns violence and exclusiveness while emphasizing the dignity of human beings as vicigirents of God on the earth.
    This book has a double purpose. On the one hand, it is a call to Muslims to a greater awareness that Islam teaches the need for dialogue and that Muslims are called to be agents and witnesses to God's unviersal mercy? On the other hand, the book is an invitation to non-Muslims to move beyond prejudice, suspicion, half-truths in order to arrive an understanding what Islam is really about. Thomas Michel
