HOW WE WORK
We energetically promote teaching and research in an academic environment of shared study.
Promoting the study of Islam among Christians and the study of Christianity among Muslims
Engaging in rigorous academic, impact-oriented teaching and research on the Muslim-Christian interface
Disseminating high-quality scholarly resources on Islam, Christianity, and the Muslim-Christian interface
OUR WORK IS ORGANISED INTO 4 KEY AREAS
Everyone has a voice. Some more influential than others, and some much louder. But is the voice to be believed? Is the voice authoritative? What are the implications, and how can one respond?
CMCS is committed to practising and developing critical thinking; to testing evidence and offering a voice at the Muslim-Christian interface that builds respect and seeks truth through scholarship.
CMCS takes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and training in Islam, Christianity and the Muslim-Christian interface. There is an increasing need in our ever-changing global context to equip and train leaders — current and future –, thinkers and decision-makers on substantive issues at these dynamic interfaces.
Our students are taught to think analytically and for themselves. We do not begin with the answers to the questions that we have — we set an agenda for seeking truth.
PEOPLE & PLACE
No longer can we pretend to live in isolation from one another. In cities and towns throughout the world, cultures, people groups and religions co-exist. A harmonious world, socially and politically, requires mutual understanding.
At the Centre, we energetically promote the building of genuine relationships through a community of shared study which fosters the mutual understanding necessary for broader and better social and political engagement between faiths.
