"Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad?" 
Thursday, September 29, 4:00-8:00 p.m.
Divinity Hall N101

In this seminar, students will hear from Beeson Divinity School Dean Timothy George on one of the most central questions for followers of Christianity in understanding Islam. From his book by the same title, Dean George will guide students in examining the similarities and departures between these two major world religions and how Christians can best engage Muslims. In addition to a robust theological presentation by Dean George, we will also welcome a Muslim-background believer and hear about his story of coming to faith in Jesus Christ. Join us for this informative and compelling event.
Register in Banner under the Spiritual Life tab. 

Cost is $12 and will be charged to your student account. The cost includes dinner and a copy of Dr. George’s book, "Is the Father of Jesus the God of Muhammad?," for each student.
Four convo credits offered.
