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.
Below are a few resources to help you become acquainted with this letter and its significance in Muslim-Christian dialog.

Torrents are small information files that direct a torrent client to find shared files on other computers on the internet. Torrents use a piece of client software to download the shared file from someone else. Two popular torrent clients are BitTorrent and uTorrent. You will need to download and install one of these, or install a similar torrent program. Then download and load the torrent files below into your torrent program to begin downloading the file.
Although file sharing networks have received much negative publicity (and rightly so) because of the amount of porn and illegal software shared, these networks can also be used for beneficial purposes. I have included below a handful of select torrents which will enable you to download the files indicated. You will need one of the torrent clients noted above to use these files. I personally host these files on my server and know them to be virus free.

The Qur'an: A documentary by Antony Thomas aired in the UK on BBC Channel 4 in 2008. This video used to be available via YouTube and other movie sharing networks but appears to have been taken down, likely due to pressure from Islamic groups who disapprove of the critical analysis of the Qur'an documented in this video.
