Of Gods And Men

I just read an article in WORLD Magazine in regards to a movie review on Of Gods and Men. It is based on true events that took place between 1993 and 1996 when a group of monks are persecuted by Islamic terrorists. An interview was done with Henri Quinson, who is a monk and was an adviser on the movie set. He had a remarkably insightful quote that I have been thinking about this morning:

“Christians need to understand the only way out of this clash of civilizations is to live our faith in a convincing and intelligent way and try to build relationships with real people. Some people say you can have a dialogue with Islam. No! You can’t have a dialogue with theories or theology. You can only come into a relationship with a person.”
