About this product
- DescriptionHow can we address the seemingly endless conflicts in the world, particularly those arising from misunderstandings of Islam by both Muslims and n-Muslims? Preventing Violence and Achieving World Peace: The Contributions of the Guelen Movement presents the essays of eight scholars who consider the diverse ways in which the Guelen Movement or hizmet (service to others) - inspired by contemporary Turkish social philosopher Fetullah Guelen - has worked to answer this question. Drawing from various intellectual and theological sources, particularly Sufism, these essays indicate multiple instances of positive interfaith and/or multicultural dialogue. In addition, they consider how the writings of Guelen and the works of the Guelen Movement, through an extensive program of education and communication, have contributed significantly to efforts that oppose violence and shape universal peace.
