ANNOUNCEMENTS


Stemming from a 2015 conference held at CMCS, this is a new volume edited by the Reading the Bible in the Context of Islam (RBCI) team. It explores the ways in which an awareness of Islam and the Qur’an can change how the Bible is read. The contributors come from both Muslim and Christian backgrounds, bring various levels of commitment to the Qur’an and the Bible as Scripture, and often have significantly different perspectives.

BOOK DETAILS RBCI
The students of the 2017 Oxford Muslim-Christian Summer School will gather for a reunion (weekend of 8th-10th Dec) to renew their friendships and to give presentations of the projects they have been working on. Rev Bruce Gillingham and Monawar Hussain will be the special guests at the gala dinner and there will also be a visit to the Bodleian Library to view its collection of ancient Bible and Qur'an texts.
