Toward a global civilization of love & tolerance / M. Fethullah Gulen ; foreword by Thomas Michel

Publication | Library Call Number: BP170 .G85 2006

This book touches on certain dynamics regarding the theoretical and cultural basis of the model Fethullah Gülen has developed based on dialogue, tolerance, concurrence among different groups that come from different religions, cultures, and civilizations. Gülen'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 vicegerents 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 universal mercy. On the other hand, the book is an invitation to non-Muslims to move beyond prejudice, suspicion, half-truths in order to arrive at an understanding of what Islam is really about. --Thomas Michel.
