This book, entitled Conversations on Fethullah Gulen and the Hizment Movement: Dreaming for a Better World, is intended to represent an open perspective on the influence of the Hizmet Movement, including Fethullah Gulen in particular, on the theme of "dreaming for a better world," based on a variety of Christian and Muslim world views. This theme is approached from three specific perspectives: education and an emphasis on interfaith and intercultural dialogue, a comparison of various spiritualties, and a consideration of the shared dreams of the two religions. The essays in this volume are adapted from talks presented by eleven authors from Canada and the United States at the Gulen Symposium at Carleton University in October 2009. The panel discussion that followed the individual presentations enhanced the overall theme of "dreaming for a better world." The symposium as a whole represented the positive potential that there is for the organization of forums of sharing that focus on this theme and on the three sub themes.

Spirituality has gained a momentum in post-modern times and societies, and this book explains how an Islamic spirituality is renewed in different areas by examining Turkish Muslim scholar Fethullah Gulen's ideas on education and dialogue. The role of faith-inspired movements in advocating the relevance of spirituality in modern debates and issues is demonstrated in this book. The book also translates the fascinating comparative examples into larger modern problems facing communities across the globe. This is a comprehensive analysis of one of the most influential Muslim scholars and thinkers' idea on spiritual action and thought. -- Erkan Toguslu, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven
