"During the past 10 years the World Council of Churches has arranged a series of meetings concerned with the Islamic world. At one level Christians have met together to consider patterns of Christian presence, service and witness among their Muslim neighbours. At another level Christians have invited Muslims to reflect together about their mutual relationships and responsibilities in the modern world. This book brings together the scattered accounts of these meetings and provides a review of recent past experiences of Christian-Muslim dialogue and a proposed agenda for future dialogue at local, regional and world levels". -- back cover.
