In Dialogue of the Heart, Fr Martin McGee presents a timely and heartfelt plea encouraging Christians everywhere to cultivate harmonious relationships with their Muslim neighbours. In penning a touching account of the story of the Trappist monks of Tibhirine, Fr Martin highlights the way in which this particular order has provided an inspiring example by reaching out to their Muslim fellow believers in modern-day North Africa. The monks’ story – familiar to many thanks to the award-winning 2010 film Of Gods and Men – forms the backbone of this deeply affecting and thoughtful celebration of interreligious friendship. By drawing on the inspiring witness of the Catholic Church in Algeria and Morocco, Fr Martin sensitively illuminates the way in which Christians can connect sincerely in everyday life with their Muslim neighbours. This book is an important and refreshing angle on getting to know and love our Muslim neighbours. – Shaun Lambert, The Baptist Times Few books could have a publication date that is more apt, for ours is a time when rational, open-minded effort is needed to confront mistrust. – Religious Life Review, September/October 2015 Believers of both religions are searching for God; and in sharing our spiritual experiences we can foster a sense of fellowship, and live in peace. Dialogue of the heart encounters with our new neighbours will help to dispel fear. Fr McGee's book Dialogue of the Heart comes as a timely reminder that we can collaborate simply as believers in one God. – Doctrine & Life, September 2015
