Virtual Open Week Webinar

The Importance of Understanding Islam

The Importance of Understanding Islam

Speaker: Dr Mark Durie

Tuesday 1st September

11AM - 12PM

This Webinar explains why engaging with Islam is important, how to do it well, and what the fruit can be in terms of Christian mission and social policy. Islam presents a set of unique challenges, not least to Christians. Too often Christians have projected their own assumptions upon Islam and Muslims, without taking its distinctives seriously, so one key challenge is just to understand the religion itself: its teachings, history and impact. Although in its core teachings, Islam includes a determined rejection of Christianity, this ideological challenge is something most Christians are ill-equipped to answer. Islam is also the most significant ideological driver for the persecution of Christians in the world today.  This Webinar will also cover four profoundly transformational changes taking place today:  the unfolding Islamic Awakening; the underlying theological crisis within Islam; the vast migrations of Muslims; and the turning of millions of Muslims to Christ.
