The life of Troll is marked by language acquisition: Arabic in Beirut, Urdu and Persian in London, and Turkish in Ankara. During the time in the Lebanon, he decided to become a Jesuit. In England, a study was made of the work of Sayyid Ahmad Khan, and in Turkey, experience gained in teaching Christian theology to Muslims, which has led to the on-going resource: www.answers-to-muslims.com. The chapter charts collaborative work with Muslim scholars in Delhi and elsewhere, promoting Christian-Muslim relations by teaching in India, Selly Oak in Birmingham, Rome and his native Germany, and the priestly work and spirituality of taking Christ and his Church into the encounter, drawing spiritual nourishment for oneself and others, and working for reconciliation through honest self-critical study and conversation with Muslim friends inspired by the writings of Pope Paul VI.
