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 .
