CLS Offers Short Term Course on Islam, Christianity, and Religious Diversity

How do we navigate this world of religious pluralism? Many of us have Hindu neighbours, Muslim acquaintances, and atheist or agnostic relatives. Concordia Lutheran Seminary is offering an M.Div. level course that addresses these issues. Drawing on both anthropological and theological insights, this course aims to be a friendly, charitable, and hospitable study of other religions, focusing closely on Islam. The instructor, Rev. Ken Chitwood, is an LCMS pastor and accomplished scholar. The course will explore Islam, study Christian-Muslim relations (past and present), and consider how Christians might foster peace-making in inter-religious encounters on a broader scale. When: January 3 – 14, 2018, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Where: Concordia Lutheran Seminary (7040 Ada Blvd NW, Edmonton) Participants are required to hold a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) to enroll. For academic credit, tuition is $840. LCC churchworkers may audit the course for $100. To register, please
