Jesus Amidst the Many Mosques: Christian Witness, Muslim Contexts is one-day conference designed to further faithful reflection on the global encounter of Christians and Muslims in multiple contexts. Bringing together scholars and religious leaders from Christianity and Islam, the conference seeks to examine theological and practical concerns shared by many. These include: How do Muslims around the world view the Bible and Christian teachings on Jesus and the Church? What are Anglican/Episcopal missiological positions on the Koran and other Islamic texts? In Western contexts of secular indifference, how do Christians and Muslims work together to honor their respective, and perhaps overlapping, faith commitments? In a world of Islamic radicalism, how do Christians working in predominately Muslim contexts live into a prophetic, Christ-centered relationship to the mosque and its world?
