About this Book:
"Christians and Muslims, we must face together the many challenges of our time. There is no room for apathy and disengagement, and even less for partiality and sectarianism. We must not yield to fear or pessimism. Rather, we must cultivate optimism and hope." (Pope Benedict XVI, 2005 "How are our beliefs different? How are they the same?" Mary, a Catholic girl, and Aisha, a Muslim, seek answers to these questions as each learns about the religion of the other. Catholic children, parents, and teachers will gain a new understanding, respect, and appreciation of Islam—and, in doing so, will come to deepen their own faith.
"This simple tale is a true example of narrative theology, in which friendship leads to greater understanding of the way by which faith illuminates a human life. Yes, the lights go on, and we find ourselves transformed." (From the Foreword by Reverend Canon Francis V. Tiso, USCCB)
