Interesting New Work on Christian-Muslim Relations
The most recent issue of Commonweal has a fascinating article on the interaction between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Malik al-Kamil during the Fifth Crusade. The piece is an adaptation of Paul Moses' The Saint and the Sultan: The Crusades, Islam, and Francis of Assisi’s Mission of Peace, to be published September 29 by Doubleday Religion.
