In a three-part seminar offered on Wednesday evenings, we are exploring the beliefs and influence of the world’s fastest growing religion, Islam. 23% of the world’s population are Muslim. While the largest Muslim population is found in Indonesia, the religion is gaining a footing across the world. Christians are often surprised that Islam has a global evangelism strategy. Historically, that strategy includes conversion as well as conquest.
Can Islam coexist with other faiths? Scrutiny of Muslim beliefs poses troubling questions for Christians in understanding the integration of faith with every aspect of a Muslim’s life. How are Christians to respond to a religion, a culture, a political system that is confronting us in ways that cannot be ignored?
This Wednesday night we will focus on how Islam views Jesus. We will look at excerpts from their sacred texts that mention Jesus and we will examine how views of Jesus differ in Christian and Muslim perspectives. Join us at 6:15 pm, July 24 in the chapel. Our third session will be on July 31.
