Published: Wednesday 25th November 2015

Are Muslims and Christians working towards uniting humanity or are they directly or indirectly causing more division? World expert on Islamic affairs Professor John Esposito is delivering a lecturer on this timely topic at ACU Melbourne Campus on 4 December.

ACU's Faculty of Theology and Philosophy together with Australian Intercultural Society and Ecumenical and Interfaith Commission is delighted to invite you to an upcoming public lecture by Professor John Esposito, Director, Centre for Christian-Muslim Relations, Georgetown University.

The topic of the lecturer is: Uniting or dividing? Christians and Muslims in our globalised world.

Muslims and Christians make up more than 50 per cent of the world's population. How they relate to one another is pivotal in establishing and maintaining world peace.

Are Muslims and Christians working towards uniting humanity or are they directly or indirectly causing more division?

Can they work together to address contemporary issues of global magnitude?

How can the ideals of interfaith dialogue transform the on-the-ground reality of relations between Christians and Muslims around the globe and particularly here in multi-faith Australia?

Q-A Session will follow the address.
