Abbot Timothy Wright proposes sowing a small seed from which might grow a greater respect between the world's two largest religions, Christianity and Islam. Indeed, he believes that the seed has already been planted, Christians give unique value to their revealed Scriptures as the "Word of God." Muslims speak of the Qur'an as God Speaking to them.
In No Peace Without Prayer, Wright presents the case to establish groups of Christians and Muslims dedicated to sharing their respective Divine Word in ways that enhance the "other" ti gain greater mutual understanding. The key word, says Wright, is partnership, arising from their shared belief in the One God, creator of the universe, communicating with the human world and merciful to the repentant.
