Jaoudi, who spent her childhood in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, recalls movingly the beauty of the muezzin's call and the candles and quiet of a Catholic chapel. Using examples from mystics and theologians of both Muslim and Christian traditions, Jaoudi presents the spiritual path of love in its three classical stages of purification, transformation, and union. The work affirms the need for recognizing the distinctive contributions of both traditions, as well as the ``similar truth and transformative path'' that stands at the heart of both Jesus' and Muhammad's message. This is a profound and sensitive book for the general reader, especially those with neighbors of the other faith. Highly recommended.
