Continuing Ed in February with ThinkND

The Global Church

In conjunction with the World Religions World Church program in Theology, ThinkND is launching a new series “The Global Church.” This series offers an opportunity to explore the Church’s relationship with the believers of other faiths around the world including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and the Church in Africa.

This January, the journey will begin by learning about “The Church and Islam” featuring Gabriel Reynolds and “The Church in the Holy Land” featuring our Jerusalem Global Gateway. We will discuss the Church’s teachings that Christ is the final and definitive self-revelation of God, yet Islam comes after Christianity and challenges Christian teaching. How should Christians understand Islam and respond to the complicated history of Muslim-Christian relations? Discover why the relationship between the Church and Islam is critical for the 21st century. Read the full press release here.

The program is named after their respective parents.
