Growing Ecologies of Peace, Compassion and Blessing
A Muslim Response to ‘A Muscat Manifesto’
How can there be ‘growing ecologies’ of peace in a world divided by religiously fuelled violence? In this learned but moving lecture, Dr. Nayed responds to Professor David Ford’s Muscat Manifesto by allowing it to call forth fresh evocations from his own Muslim tradition. The result is a striking statement of vision in which ‘deep calls to deep’. Here is no reductive ‘lowest common denominator’ theology of the religious other, but a searching account of the necessary alignment of prayer, theology, and service to the poor in the quest for mutual understanding and blessing.
