In the West, it is not well known that Jesus is an important figure in the history of Islam. Perhaps it's time to change that. Dr. Saritoprak's groundbreaking new book examines Islam's theological engagement with the Nazarene and explores his role in the future of Islam itself. It begins by examining the Muslim world's understanding of Jesus as found in the Qu'ran and Hadith. In these key religious texts Jesus is not just a historical figure, but an Islamic messiah. One of the key roles the Son of Mary plays today and in the future is as a bridge between Christianity and Islam. The final chapter surveys his place in Christian-Muslim dialogue. As more than half of the world's people are either Muslim or Christian, through dialogue Jesus can be a bringer of world peace. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing at the event. The event is free of charge. RSVP is required.
