The Gospel of Peace in Dynamic Engagement with the Peace of Islam: The Seventh-Century Arabian ContextDr. David W. Shenk, a global consultant with Eastern Mennonite Missions, opens this weeklong mission seminar (held at OMSC) with this public lecture (held at First Baptist Church, New Haven). Throughout the week he explores the church's calling to bear witness to the Gospel of peace in its engagement with Muslims, whether in contexts of militancy or in settings of moderation. He is especially concerned with equipping Christians to bear faithful witness to Christ within a world of many religions, including Islam. Cosponsored by Eastern Mennonite Mission and Mennonite Central Committee.
