5.0 out of 5 stars Historically impressive and spiritually inspirational, 19 Feb 2011
My interest in the monks of Tibhirine was triggered on seeing the film "Of Gods and of men". I wanted to gain a wider understanding of these men, of their mission as they perceived it, and indeed as it was perceived by those living around them. This book sets out the historical context of the arrival of the monks in Algeria in the mid 19th century and the co-existence of these Christian communities in the Muslim world. It is spiritually inspirational in drawing together the common aspects of Islam and Christianity and sets a challenge to Christians and Muslims alike, that in truly embracing our core beliefs, neither can justify hostility to the other. It sets us all a challenge to move closer to each other lead by the example of Christian de Chergé and his brothers.
