91.Professor Bruce B. Lawrence

As an Episcopal priest who has spent his entire life studying and living in the Muslim world, I support this welcome initiative to bring minds and hearts, prayerful and hopeful people from all corners of the Abrahamic tent, to focus on the need for vigilance, engagement and trust in the pursuit of a world transformed by the higher calling of Divine Truth. In the words of the Noble Book, ’’what is the reward for pursuit of the Good and the Beautiful but (further) pursuit of the Good and the Beautiful?” Surat ar-Rahman(Q 55: 60)
