Recensioner i media
"With verve and insight, the contributors discuss the concept "minority", and suggest its replacement by the less divisive term "citizenship"; the status of non-Muslims in a future Palestinian state; the legal situation of non-Muslim women in Pakistan; and the "Islamization of laws in Pakistan and its effect on minorities". The book concludes with a look at how "Christians who find themselves under attack from neighbours of the other faiths might react and act". Emphasising "the need for harmonious relations", Christians and Muslims are called to continue "building trust", and "identifying common concerns", so as to achieve "peaceful coexistence". [...] Besides discussing pertinent issues the book provides relevant statistics on the different minority faiths, and faith-based organisations, in Muslim lands. [...] Forthright and informative, this book is an indispensable resource for all those with an interest in inter-faith dialogue." Dr. Simon Ross Valentine in: Church Times, 7. September 2012.
