Understanding Islam: Exploring Islam with Fr Damian Howard SJ

03/06/2014 1:48 pm

Understanding Islam - podcasts

In 2013 we spoke to Fr Damian Howard SJ about a course he leads called Understanding Islam. You can listen here

The main aim of the course is to explore how we relate to Muslims and understand Islam as Catholics.

We've decided to take it on a little further and record a series of four podcasts doing exactly that.

We look at...

Part One: Origins of Islam

Part Two: Islamic Beliefs

Part Three: Islamic Law

Part Four: Christianity and Islam 

Our studio guest, Fr Damian Howard is a Jesuit priest and Lecturer in Theology at Heythrop College, University of London. 

He combines work in pastoral and spiritual ministries with teaching and research in theology, contemporary spirituality and interreligious dialogue, especially between Christians and Muslims.

Fr Damian's the author of Being Human in Islam: The Impact of the Evolutionary Worldview (2011).
