Christian and Islamic Spirituality presents the similar teachings on love and peace that characterize these two magnificent traditions. Author Maria Jaoudi has spent a great portion of her life in the Middle East, and has written this work in order to create a bridge between Christians and Muslims at the deepest level of prayer and growth in spirituality. She also expresses their mutual heritage that has always been of concern for a peaceful and healthy planet. Dr. Jaoudi bases her chapters on the three classical mystical stages of the spiritual journey itself: purification, transformation and, finally, union with God. Each chapter centers on the insights of saints and theologians from both traditions. Jaoudi has included a section of God-centered ecology which reveals a mutual strong component in both religions.
Demonstrates the similarities of the shared heritage of rich spirituality and reverence for life between the Christian and Islamic traditions.
