I hope you'll join us for a special & fruitful conversation online with Dr. Craig Considine about his new book called People of the Book: Prophet Muhammad's Encounters with Christians on Sunday, June 12 at 2-3:30pm EST!

The Christians that lived around the Arabian Peninsula during Prophet Muhammad's (Pbuh) lifetime are shrouded in mystery. Some of the stories of the Prophet's interactions with them are based on legends and myths, while others are more authentic and plausible. But who exactly were these Christians? Why did Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) interact with them as he reportedly did? And what lessons can today's Muslims and Christians learn from these encounters? These are some of the questions explored in Dr. Craig's book. Dr. Craig speaks in admiration of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) by highlighting his vision of an inclusive Ummah or Muslim nation, rooted in citizenship rights, interfaith dialogue and freedom of conscience, religion and speech.

This conversation is hosted in partnership with my friend and colleague Becca Tyvoll of Peace Catalyst International, DC , and we can't wait to see you for this interactive end enriching discussion with Dr. Craig about his book, and any questions you may have about the interactions that took place between Christians and Muslims in the early 7th century!

The Rivertown's Clergy Association 

Interfaith Community Thanksgiving Service 

Our Common Beliefs has been graciously invited by the Rivertown's Clergy Association to the Interfaith Community Thanksgiving Service.


Date:

Tuesday November 23, 2021 at 7:30 pm

Our Common Beliefs graciously invites you to a conversation with Dr. Craig Considine, author of the groundbreaking book, 

 "The Humanity of Muhammad: A Christian View". 


In this overview of Prophet Muhammad's (Pbuh) life and legacy, prominent scholar Dr. Craig Considine provides a sociological analysis of Prophet Muhammad's (Pbuh) teachings and example. Considine shows how the Prophet embraced religious pluralism, envisioned a civic nation, stood for anti-racism, advocated for seeking knowledge, initiated women's rights, and followed the Golden Rule. Considine sheds light on the side of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) that is often forgotten in mainstream depictions and media narratives. "The Humanity of Muhammad" is Considine's contribution to the growing body of literature on one of history's most important human beings.


Dr. Craig Considine is an author and professor of sociology at Rice University in Houston, TX.

Registration is compulsory.
