  • Christian, Jewish, and Muslim Scholars Present on February 2

    December 22, 2010

    Jamal Rahman, Kathleen Schmitt Elias, and Ann Holmes Redding, co-authors of Out of Darkness into Light: Spiritual Guidance in the Quran with Reflections from Christian and Jewish Sources , discuss the challenges of interfaith understanding at 7 p.m. on February 2 in Bannan Auditorium on the Seattle University  campus. They draw on their own experiences as co-authors of a book that brings Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions into conversation with one another.

    “Interfaith dialogue is essential, but that does not mean it is easy,” says Heath Spencer , Senior Lecturer in the Department of History .  “This panel presentation and discussion will focus on some of the challenges we experience in interfaith encounters, as well as how we might overcome those challenges.”

    This event is sponsored by the Faith and the Great Ideas Core Academic Program, the Core Track for Diversity, Citizenship and social Justice, and the College of Arts and Sciences Events Committee.

    Spencer directs the Faith and the Great Ideas Core Academic Program in theCollege of Arts and Sciences, which offers 33 undergraduate and 7 advanced degrees .
