Introduction To Islam

A Dialogical Overview for 21st Century Christians

Harold Vogelaar, Visiting Professor of World Religion at Lutheran School of Theology, Chicago, IL, and other top scholars of the Islamic faith share basic beliefs, and practices of Islam, and the historic and current relationship between Christians and Muslims.

Students will gain two important perspectives from this program.  First, they will get a solid overview and deeper understanding of the religion of Islam.  Secondly, they will gain a new appreciation of the relationship between Christianity and Islam, including possibilities for hope and dialog in the post-September 11 era.
