Biskop Peter Fischer-MĂ¸ller og Prof. Jakob Skovgaard-Petersen holder oplĂ¦g om den religiĂ¸se dialog som en del af sociale processer og politik i MellemĂ¸sten sĂĄvel som Danmark – efterfulgt af spĂ¸rgsmĂĄl og debat.
Forholdet mellem MellemĂ¸sten og Vesten, islam og kristendommen, muslimer og sekulariserede samfund, har stor indflydelse pĂĄ den politiske dagsorden bĂĄde i Danmark og MellemĂ¸sten. Svaret pĂĄ de mange spĂ¦ndinger sĂ¸ges ofte i dialogen – men hvordan udfĂ¸res dialogen og hvilken indflydelse har den pĂĄ samfundene i Danmark og MellemĂ¸sten?
Bogen Christian-Muslim Relations in Egypt: Politics, Society and Interfaith Encounters beskriver, hvad religiĂ¸s dialog er i det egyptiske samfund, men er ogsĂĄ en generel diskussion af, hvordan vi kan forstĂĄ dialog som en del af sociale processer.

Udtalelser om bogen
Dr. Kate Zebiri, Senior Lecturer in Arabic, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London:
This study is a timely contribution to a hitherto neglected area, and highlights the vital importance of religion in Egyptian society and politics. Based on many years of experience on the ground, it greatly enhances our understanding of the dynamics of interfaith relations in Egypt. It sheds light on the different types of religious discrimination which occur, while also providing an innovative typology of the various dialogue initiatives in contemporary Egypt. Using the tools of sociology and social psychology, this book will be of interest to scholars, students and those working in the field of interfaith dialogue.
Prof. Mark Sedgwick, Arab and Islamic Studies, Aarhus University:
Christian-Muslim Relations in Egypt is essential reading for all those interested in todayâ€™s Egypt. The book is an important contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of Egyptian society and politics, as well as being a major addition to our knowledge of Christian-Muslim relations. Henrik Lindberg Hansen adds penetrating analysis to the authority of long experience. The book ends with an especially valuable chapter on the controversial events of 2011 and 2013, on their impact at the time, and on their possible future implications.
Prof. David Thomas, School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion, University of Birmingham:
The networks that operate in Egyptian society are involved and hard to discern, yet they are essential to maintaining relations between both individuals and groups. In this study, Henrik Lindberg Hansen, who has spent many years living in Egypt, shows how dialogue between Christians and Muslims operates through these networks and profits from the links they provide. His study gives a rare insight into unseen aspects of dialogue in Egypt, and makes an unusual and distinctive contribution to research in the field of Christian-Muslim dialogue. This book will give both newcomers and established researchers in the field fresh understandings of the practicalities of dialogue and the intricate relations between Egyptian society and religion.
