About-

Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, a time for self-examination, devotion and reading the scriptures.In this latest book of Christian-Muslim reflections Dave Andrews again takes lessons from this time of fasting, offering guidance to the adherents of all three Abrahamic faiths. While fasting is out of fashion in our consumerist society, Dave Andrews shows how through it we can recognise both our human weaknesses and our capacity to help others. Through fasting and reflection during Ramadan we can focus on the priorities of loving God and loving neighbour, and bring friends together in an act of interfaith conversation.
