Understanding Islam

Posted on 24. Sep, 2015, in Immigrants, Islam, Media2 Comments


The Islamic religion has come under increasing scrutiny as the rise of the extremist group Isis are causing more and more people to flee Syria and come to Europe. Canon Patrick Comerford is a lecturer in Anglicanism, Litury and Church History in The Church of Ireland Theological Institute. His research interests include Christian–Muslim relations, and has published, Reflections of the Bible in the Quran: a comparison of Scriptural Traditions in Christianity and Islam. Here he talks with Miriam Gormally about the rise of ISIS and some of the confusion and misunderstandings that have arisen about Islam as a result. Miriam began by asking him if there is great distrust towards Islam than there has been in the past.

    I wonder why Christians invest more energy than Muslims in promoting Islamic affairs rather than their own Christian faith. The relationship would be more defined if Christians can spend their research resources on how to strengthen their faith and their relationship with God according to the Bible.
