Article by Emmanuel College Director of MPS and MTS, and Professor of Muslim Studies, Nevin Reda, featured in AAR Spotlight
The American Academy of Religion (AAR) has published a special issue to the Spotlight on Theological Education
dedicated to “Islamic Studies at North American Theological Seminaries.”
The majority of North American theological seminaries were created for, and by, Christians at a time when "interreligious" meant interdenominational. The contributors to the spring 2016 issue of Spotlight on Theological Education consider how American and Canadian seminaries are embracing the demand for Islamic theology and chaplaincy in the North American context. The issue includes essays from Ermin Sinanović, Nevin Reda (Emmanuel College), Feryal Salem, Scott C. Alexander, Munir Jiwa, and Spotlight editor, Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner.
