(35% Discount) Reclaiming Beauty for the Good of the World: Muslim & Christian Creativity as Moral Power
Here is a truly fresh approach to interfaith dialogue: through the creativity of artists inspired by their Muslim or Christian faith, and through the creative lives of people who give a human face to the beauty at the core of both faiths.
Relying on the transformative power of art, the narrative allows us to move beyond our political and theological differences, propelling us toward a unique level of awareness, one that embraces a common vision of a world bathed in the light of beauty. This book has been described as a sincere searching and profound exploration of the profound message embodied in all that is beautiful, and in all unlovely things, that beauty transfigures; here, Christian speaks to Muslim and Muslim to Christian, heart to heart. The cover image is the dome in the courtyard of the Mosque of the Ascension, atop the Mount of Olives, marks the spot where Muslims and Christians believe that Jesus ascended into heaven. Christians keeps vigil here when celebrating this feast. Nearby is the modern Church of the Ascension and the shadow of the minaret is seen upon this monument.
