Loving God and Neighbor in Word and Deed: Implications for Christians and Muslims

Yale Center for Faith and Culture, Reconciliation Program

New Haven, CT, USA   July 24-31, 2008

 

The conference, “Loving God and Neighbor in Word and Deed: Implications for Muslims and Christians,” includes both a scholarly workshop and a broader conference. The workshop, closed to the press and public and scheduled for July 24-28, involves approximately 60 Christian and Muslim scholars, along with three Jewish observers. The larger conference, July 28-31, involving more than 60 Muslim participants (mostly from the Middle East), a similar number of Christians, and nine Jewish guests, extends the discussions of the preceding scholarly workshop to a larger group of scholars and leaders. See the Yale Divinity School commonword link for more details.
