Peace  free pdf In a world that is too often seen as a "clash of civilisations", some believe there is another way -- a path that involves engagement, dialogue, and respect. In this book he explores how Fethullah Gulen is one of those speaking most vocally in favour of a world community, where different faiths and nations can come together at one table to solve the multitude of problems facing todays world. Exploring the spiritual roots of Gulen and the Hizmet Movement, as well as drawing parallels between his own work as a Catholic priest, Michel shows how Hizmet has helped build a blueprint for intercultural communication in a time when too many voices are trying to stoke the fires of discord. Through education, dialogue, and a respect for basic human dignity, Michel finds a foundation in Gulens faith and Hizmets service upon which a healthy, diverse society can be built.
