Exploring Islam – Sept. 26, 2017 PowerPoint & Audio PresentationPresenter: Dr. Michelle Rebidoux, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies at MUN and Professor of Ethics at Queen’s College Faculty of Theology. As the second largest and the fastest growing religion in the world, Islam is quickly becoming a global force. Nevertheless, many people, including many Christians, know little about the core beliefs and practices of this tradition which, as the third of the Abrahamic religions, shares much in common with Christianity. Indeed, popular media portrayals of Islam continue to fuel misunderstandings. This session is designed to help participants understand and appreciate the religious beliefs and practices of the vast majority of Muslims, who detest violence and terrorism as much as any typical Christian and Canadian. It will also address some of the factors involved in the rise of radical Islam in today’s global society.
