Format: Paperback
Fr. Thomas Michel is the Jesuit who has done the most work on interfaith dialogue with Muslims. This is an excellent collection of his writings, which are hard to find separately. I teach in a Catholic university, and use this book in my courses on Islam. Fr. Michel has a PhD in Islamic Studies, and has lived and worked for decades with Muslims in Indonesia and Turkey. If you want a Christian understanding of Islam, this is the book for you.

Format: Paperback
I expected a lot more out of Fr Thomas Michel, S.J. in this book. The book is mesh-mash of everything. When talking about whether to proclaim or diaoluge, he doesn't mind tucking in the Tao and "coming to harmony with the eternal Tao, realizing the Buddha nature in oneself" (p. 20). Fr Tom, is that a Buddhist view of Islam? Or a general course in the study of religion? When I go to Muslims, I hope I am going with my head up high, not compromising and not talking about the Tao of Buddha. This mesh mash of religions and the universalistic trend that runs throughout the whole book is terribly frustrating. I am thankful I converted to Christianity before reading that book!!
