To launch the publication of Andy Thompson’s new book “Christianity in the UAE. Culture and Heritage” the UK Ambassador hosted a Majlis discussion during the Embassy’s reception to mark the 40th Anniversary of the UAE. The discussion was led by The Duke of York and HH Shaikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan and guests included Syed Ali Al Hashemi, Spiritual Adviser to Shaikh Khalifa, other religious leaders and scholars and leading members of the British and Emirati community.
Christianity in the UAE. Culture and Heritage, celebrates the extraordinary relationship between Emiratis and the Christian community in the UAE, a statement from the embassy said. UK Ambassador Dominic Jermey said: “Andy Thompson’s book is a wonderful celebration of Christian Churches in the UAE. As Ambassador of the United Kingdom, a country very proud of its multi faith heritage and identity, I am delighted to support this work. The UAE’s warmth towards Christianity and many other faiths is a wonderful legacy of [His Highness] Shaikh Zayed’s advocacy of an open and tolerant society.”
Copies of Christianity in the UAE. Culture and Heritage are available from the DECC Bible Society Bookshop, Al Ain Evangelical Church, Holy Trinity Dubai Resource Centre and St Andrew’s Church in Abu Dhabi office. It is available on line at booksofarabia.com.
The launch event was also published in Gulf News.
There are many things about which people could say “only in the UAE” or “only in Abu Dhabi“.
