This film will act as a powerful reminder that no foe is ever as evil as war propaganda makes him seem. It may also cause us to ask why encounters such as the one it dramatizes are too often left unremembered and unstudied while the bloody battles that the men of faith strived to stop become the foundations of our cultural assumptions for centuries to follow.
Francis is telling us clearly in his testament, to be a peacemaker in this world in the manner of Jesus Christ.
Encounter between people of sincere faith and conviction is an essential task for people of good will. Peacemaking is a reflection of the very character of God. The Sultan and the Saint shows us the possibility of God’s wider purposes in helping different kinds of people find a pathway to peace and mutual respect, a lesson which is essential for Evangelicals and Muslims alike.
