In October 2007, 138 Islamic scholars issued a letter to Christian leaders worldwide to unite together for the sake of peace and harmony around the shared values of Love of God and Love of Neighbor. This letter became known as "The Common Word" letter. This letter and subsequent responsed from Christians has created quite a bit of discussion. A website has been dedicated to tracking the responses of this initiative.
