Islam and Mormonism: Friday afternoons, 1:00-2:30 p.m., April 9, 16, 23 and 30, and May 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2021.
Two miniseries back-to-back. During the first four weeks we will use textual, historical, and philosophical methods to study the life of Muhammad, the founding of Islam, the Qur’an, the beliefs, practices, law, and basic history of Islam, terrorism, and the challenges facing the Muslim world and the West in the 21st century. During the last four weeks, we will examine the beliefs, practices, history, and social dynamics of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Includes a comparison of LDS teachings with traditional forms of Christianity and reflections on the evolution of religious communities over time (particularly Judaism and Christianity) using the history of the LDS Church as a model.
