Cover of "Gordon Hannon - Some Parson! - Some Man" by David Hannon

“Gordon Hannon was ‘a prophet ahead of his time’. His son David has captured a wonderful character with the natural affection of the author for his subject combining with an admirable objectivity. I put the book on my bedside table intending to read a little at a time. However, I enjoyed it so much that I read it straight through and woke up next morning to find it lying on my bed, open at the last page!” Archbishop Robin Eames

Un sens à l'Europe: book by Catherine Guisan, 2003

Pour Catherine Guisan, enseignante en histoire politique, l'intégration européenne repose sur des "trésors perdus" qu'il est grand temps de retrouver. C’est un livre vivant et optimiste que nous livre de son Amérique d’adoption, la Suissesse Catherine Guisan. Il a le double mérite de rappeler sur quelles bases repose l’Union européenne et de faire revivre le « trésor perdu » de l’intégration européenne.

Piguet, Jaqueline, Allemagne, cover

Ces lettres sont publiées aujourd’hui car, avec le recul, elles apportent un témoignage émouvant sur le chemin parcouru par les anciens ennemis et en premier lieu par Jacqueline Piguet-Koechlin et ses compagnons.
Si dès la guerre terminée, des responsables politiques pensaient déjà à la réconciliation de l’Europe déchirée, Frank Buchman, avait lui aussi senti l’urgence de réintégrer l’Allemagne dans la famille des nations. N’avait-il pas lancé ce défi à Irène Laure, alors député des Bouches-du-Rhône : « Comment voulez-vous reconstruire l’Europe sans l’Allemagne ? »

Cover of \'Skills of Discernment\' by Charis Waddy

Charis Waddy was one of the liveliest minds in the early history of IofC. By 1935 she had an Oxford degree in Arabic and Hebrew, and a PhD from the University of London. At the age of 25 she laid aside her status and career to work full-time with Frank Buchman, helping to architect the thought and action of a developing outreach. In the early 1960’s came the call to take up her Middle East scholarship again. For the next 30 years she researched, travelled, corresponded, lectured and published, and cultivated hundreds of friendships in the Muslim world and beyond. When she died in August 2004, she was described by Dr Zaki Badawi, Director of The Muslim College in London, as a towering contributor to the interfaith movement.
