Endorsements & Reviews-

'Dave Andrews is no sit-down Christian. He's an activist, driven by a belief in a radical compassion that can change the world from a mean place to a loving
community, amongst people of all religions. One of the ways he demonstrates it is by entering into a dialogue with Muslim friends. For the month of Ramadan, Dave kept a Spiritual Diary. In it he explores the points of enrichment which he finds in considering the Bismillah, the praise found at the beginning of each sura of the Qur'an: 'In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful'.
Rachael Kohn, Presenter, The Spirit Of Things, Radio National, ABC Radio.

"Dave Andrews understands that empathy and insight only come by choosing to indwell another's story. As a Christian participating in Ramadan he gains both."
Tim Costello, Executive Director, World Vision (Australia)

'Dave's reflections (during) Ramadan demonstrate that Muslims and Christians have much to teach and learn from each other in respect to navigating a path towards God and living according to God's will.'
Halim Rane, Deputy Director, Griffith Islamic Research Unit; Senior Lecturer, National Centre of Excellence in Islamic Studies

'This unique work contains all of Dave's Ramadan reflections, his profound thoughts on what it means to be a true witness to God's love, mercy and compassion for all His creation'.
Nora Amath, President, AMARAH - Australian Muslim Advocates for the Rights of All Humanity
