"In this edition of Promotio Iustitae, a number of Jesuits who live together with Muslim communities in various parts of the world describe their experience of sharing life with people of Islamic faith, in very distinct circumstances. They speak about the challenges and opportunities presented by dialogue with these communities in everyday life. They describe what they have learned and how they have been rewarded by these encounters. Moreover, they reflect on what Muslims and Christians can offer each other in this complicated world that we live in. We hope that these pages can help us to better position ourselves faced with the challenge of living together, Christians and Muslims.”
