Islam and Culture
Islam began circa 1400 years ago, yet a true Muslim would say it has been here much longer. In form and structure, Islam is much like Judaism and Christianity, but there are obviously significant differences. This course will explore both the similarities and the differences while seeking to grasp what it is like to be Muslim in the post-9/11 world. Instructor J. David Tidwell has taught Islam and studied the Qur’an and he lived in Saudi Arabia for 6 years.

Date:                Thursdays, April 24 — May 29
Time:                6 — 7:30 p.m.
