Contact, Conversation, & Conversion: The Early Centuries of Muslim-Christian Relations

Who are the Muslims? What do they believe? How do Muslims differ from Christians? Do the two have anything in common? Why are relationships so tense and what does the future hold?

These questions seem very contemporary, but they were being asked long before the 21st century. GST faculty and CSART fellow Dr. Kelli Gibson is an expert on Christianity in the Middle East during the origins and early history of Islam. Her lecture takes us back to those early centuries so that we can better understand the current situation in light of the past.

The lecture will be held in the Onstead-Packer Biblical Studies Buidling in room 114.
