The Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies



Here’s a chance to meet some of the staff at the centre, get a better understanding of what we do and find out why it is so important.

Thinking Biblically about Islam – a new book by Dr Ida Glaser with Hannah Kay – was launched in 2016 at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University. Watch the book launch below.

The latest issue of the Research Briefings is now available in print and online and looks at the implications of Muslims and Christians Sharing Territory.

In this careful double exposition of the Bible and Islam, Ida Glaser and Hannah Kay emphasize godly attitudes, loving action and a deep appreciation of God’s grace and goodness as essential traits of any Christian. The authors walk the reader through two underlying frameworks necessary to think biblically about Islam.

The 2017 Oxford Muslim-Christian Summer School (16th-23rd August), run in association with Ebrahim College and the Islamic College for Advanced Studies, was a great success! A preliminary report and some pictures are now available.
