Celebrating Tolerance: Religious Diversity in the United Arab Emirates

Celebrating Tolerance: Religious Diversity in the United Arab Emirates
AED 145.00

To celebrate the 2019 Year of Tolerance in the UAE, a diverse group of faiths collaborated in producing this book, Celebrating Tolerance: Religious Diversity in the United Arab Emirates, which serves as a compendium of their experiences of coexisting peacefully in the country.

Representatives of each faith provide a brief overview of its migration to the UAE in the early 1960s and 1970s with an understanding of its rituals resulting in an engaging and informative read.

Envisioned by the Reverend Canon Andrew Thompson from the Anglican Church in Abu Dhabi, the book is the first of its kind delivering an important message of tolerance; a testament to the country's highly tolerant views and acceptance of a very diverse group of people who come from all over the world.
