Fall Hesburgh Lecture 10/16
The Bible and the Qur’an by Gabriel Said Reynolds, Ph.D., Professor, Islamic Studies and Theology, Summary of talk: To Muslims, the Qur’an is the uncreated, eternal Word of God. As Jesus Christ is to Christians, the Qur’an to Muslims is the fullest expression of God’s concern for humanity. It is the source of spiritual wisdom and the constitution for a perfect society. It is the only faithfully preserved scripture. To critical scholars, however, things are more complicated. Today, the discovery of ancient manuscripts and the rise of cutting-edge research challenge traditional Islamic views about the Qur’an. This lecture will discuss the latest academic debates about the Qur’an and focus on the question of its relationship to the Bible. For more information and to RSVP, click HERE.
