‘Christian-Muslim Relations: hope or challenge?’

The Anne Spencer Memorial Lecture: ‘Christian-Muslim Relations: hope or challenge?’
Organised by the Multifaith Chaplaincy as part of the University of Bristol Centenary lecture seriesThere are multiple ways of looking at the relationship between two of the world’s largest faiths. While some point to existing even worsening tensions, many who are involved in Christian-Muslim relations understand that the moral and social challenges facing us demand that people place God’s love and mercy at the centre of their thinking. This is a challenge for all of us however we think of God. In the UK, Christian-Muslim conversations are a luxury; in many other parts of the world they are a necessity for the simple security of a society. This lecture will look at some of the themes and tensions which are present when these two faith groups engage.
