Islam In Your Backyard



Islam is no longer a distant, foreign faith in Australia. All of us
have Muslim friends, classmates and sporting teammates. But what do they believe? The media sends us very mixed messages about this, being full of stories about Muslim terrorism on one hand, and Islamophobia on the other. Some say that Islam is inherently violent; others that it is peaceful. Which is true? This seminar will explain the basic beliefs of Muslims consider what it means to have Islam in our backyard.

The presenter is Dr. Richard Schumack, who is a research fellow specialising in philosophy of religion with the Centre for Public Christianity in Sydney. He is on the faculty at the Centre for the Study of Islam and Other Faiths at Melbourne School of Theology and part of the Understanding and Answering Islam team at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. He teaches regularly on ministry in Muslim contexts in Australian colleges, universities, churches and schools. His publications include Witnessing to Western Muslims and the philosophical apologetic The Wisdom of Islam and the Foolishness of Christianity. He lives in Sydney with his wife and four sons.
