We sometimes say that Muslims and Christians are part of Abraham's family, but while you can choose your friends, you cannot choose your family. In a world filled with conflict, can Christians be friends with Muslims? When it comes to medical ethics, the economy, the environment, media, the arts, the place of women in society, political engagement, do Christians and Muslims have any views in common? Utilizing the writings of respected Muslim reformer Tariq Ramadan, Tom Wilson asks questions about what kind of friendship Christians and Muslims might have. While we disagree as to who Jesus is or how we can be saved, can we agree in our concern for a fairer, more just society? Can we work together for the common good as friends who disagree but remain respectful?
Tom Wilson is the Director of the St Philip's Centre in Leicester, and former interfaith adviser for the Diocese of Gloucester.

My Special Place is a resource that seeks to help people overcome those fears introduce their beliefs through the story of their own lives through identifying places which have a special meaning or memory and together visiting those places.
