Jordan Denari and "Finding Jesus among Muslims"
On Monday, March 25th, 2019, CICW hosted a public lecture at Shenandoah University by Jordan Denari Duffner. Jordan is a leading Catholic voice on Muslim-Christian relations, interreligious dialogue, and anti-Muslim prejudice. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Theological and Religious Studies at Georgetown University. In her lecture, Jordan talked about her recent book, “Finding Jesus among Muslims: How loving Muslims makes me a better Catholic.” Through her personal example and the analysis of both Christian and Muslim theology, Jordan laid a strong foundation for the Christian-Muslim dialogue and cooperation. The lecture was attended by more than 50 SU faculty and students, as well as members of the local Muslim and Christian communities.
