Understanding Islam 2009

St Stephen's House will again this year run an introductory course for Christians entitled Understanding Islam. The course will be led by the Revd Dr David Marshall and provides members of the student body and guests with a special opportunity to discover more about Islamic faith and practice and its impact on Christianity throughout the world. This is a proven, successful course that has enriched and nourished guests and students in the past.

The Archbishop of Canterbury commends the course, writing:

Many Christians today are conscious of the need to grow in their understanding both of Islam and of the issues raised in Christian-Muslim dialogue. David Marshall has worked extensively in this field, both as a scholar and in a number of significant practical initiatives within the Church of England and across the Anglican Communion. The course that he will be leading at St Stephen's House offers a valuable opportunity which I hope many will take up. I commend it warmly.
The course will run from 8th - 11th June 2009 and further details are available here.
