Show Summary Details


Like many young Frenchmen of his generation, Gaudeul met Muslims first on compulsory military service in Algeria. Later, as a member of the Missionaries of Africa, he worked in Tanzania before moving to teach at PISAI. His major academic contribution was a history of Christian-Muslim relations. A theology of mission orientated towards the Kingdom of God was drawn out from the writings of Cardinal Lavigerie and his earliest followers. During discussion of three decades of work in France, important themes explored include: Muslims' conversion to Christianity, the place of Muslims in France, official relations with the French bishops, and multifaith prayer within marriage.
