This book, presents to readers, Christians, Muslims and others, a clear presentation of the question of religious diversity from a faith-based perspective.

    The Adyan Volunteers' Network disseminates the foundation's values and the advocacy for its causes, especially among the youth, through cultural, social and spiritual activities and daily witness. The Adyan Youth Network is a space where young Lebanese can explore and experiment the cultural and religious diversity as well as the interfaith solidarity. It also helps in monitoring the situation of coexistence and its challenges among the youth, building their capacities in order to establish a better generation and supporting them in their role of social change agents. The Interfaith Family Network gathers couples from different religious backgrounds and represents a space for sharing experiences in relation to the couple and family life and its values, as well as for experiencing and building interfaith solidarity and interreligious relations with the group and its social environment. The Prayer Network: Adyan believes in the importance of prayers and that all authentic prayers are heard. Adyan also firmly believes that spiritual solidarity allows people from different religions to join in their prayers. They do not join in the same form of prayer, out of respect to each tradition's specificities, but they pray, each in his/her own way and each in his/her own place, for the same intent, suggested occasionally by Adyan.
