Who is Allah? What makes Him unique? And what does He ask of those who submit to His teachings? Pulitzer Prize-winning author and recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and MacArthur Genius Grant Jack Miles has raised those questions and more in his latest book, God in the Qur’an (2018). Setting passages from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and the Qur’an side by side, Miles points out what is unique about Allah, His teachings and His temperament, and in doing so eliminates that which is false, distorted, or simply absent from popular conception of the heart of Islam.
As part of the Tom and Julie Condon Lecture Series, Miles, a Christian scholar, and Dr. Amir Hussain, a Muslim scholar and Professor of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University will discuss the issues considered in God and the Qur’an. Their dialogue will be followed by a time for questions and answers from the audience.
“Reading this book could be a crucial step out of ignorance at a time of rising Islamophobia.” –Ron Charles, The Washington Post (September, 2018)
