Francis of Assisi lived at time when Christians were at war with Muslims. Francis, a former soldier and prisoner of war, differed from the Church and his fellow Christians in believing that war was not the answer. He made a daring journey across enemy lines to make a case for peace to the Muslim leader, the sultan of Egypt. What ensued between the men had a profound and lasting effect on both of them, as they shared thoughts on war, peace and faith. It is a story that can offer some insights into the struggle for peace between Christians and Muslims today.
