Christian Lives Given to the Study of Islam

Andreas D'Souza

Fordham University Press

Born in multi-religious Kerala, India, D'Souza became a Franciscan and was called to the work of reconciliation in the context of Hindu-Muslim disturbances. He studied at PISAI, under Montgomery Watt in Edinburgh, and at McGill in Canada, where he wrote on the work of Indian Muslim scholars: Ahmad Khan, Azad and Mawdudi. The locus of the chapter is the Henry Martyn Institute in Hyderabad, its transformation from evangelization to reconciliation underpinned by a “theology of relationships” aimed at mutual transformation. The final focus is on the inner mystical path of the love of God combining insights from Rabi'a of Basra, Francis of Assisi and Ibn Arabi to lead the believer into consciously living constantly in the presence of God.
