“Dave Andrews is no sit-down Christian. He’s an activist, driven by a belief in a radical compassion that can change the world from a mean place to a loving community, amongst people of all religions. One of the ways he demonstrates it is by entering into a dialogue with Muslim friends. For the month of Ramadan, Dave kept a Spiritual Diary. In it he explores the points of enrichment which he finds in considering the Bismillah, the praise found at the beginning of each sura of the Qur’an: ‘In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful’.”
