HD761 Muslims and Christians Face to Face
Traces the historical development of Islam from the call of Muhammad in 610 to the death of the last of the four rightly-guided caliphs in 661, and explores the major themes of the Qur’an highlighting some of the theological continuities and discontinuities in Islamic and Christian thought. Particular attention will be paid to selected Muslim and Christian scholars representing the range of encounters in Christian-Muslim relations. It aims at equipping participants with the hermeneutical skills to biblically and theologically engage with Islam and relate to Muslims in a post 9/11 world context.
