“Christians and Muslims: Toward a Shared Future” is the topic of a presentation at Xavier University on Wednesday, November 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Schiff Family Conference Center at the University’s Cintas Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Of all the conflicts facing today’s world, perhaps none is more prominent than the perceived gulf between Islam and Christianity. Join Amir Hussain and Elias Mallon as they explore some of the ways these two great religions might coexist in a globalized world.

Amir Hussain, an associate professor of theological studies at Loyola Marymount University, has a formal relationship with the United Church of Canada and has worked with the United Methodist Church in the United States. He is the author of Oil and Water: Two Faiths, One God.

Elias Mallon, of Franciscans International, has taught at several American universities and is a former director of the Graymoor Ecumenical and Interreligious Institute in New York City. He is the author of Islam: What Catholics Should Know.

This event is sponsored by Xavier’s Brueggeman Center for Dialogue, The Franciscans Network, The Office for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. For more information about the conference please contact the Brueggeman Center at 513-745-3922.
