Honest conversations

John Clark explains the importance of dialogue between Christians and Muslims, the focus of a conference in Dundee in November.


HONEST, and at times dishonest, conversations between Muslims and Christians have taken place since the early days of Islam 1500 years ago.

Both Islam and Christianity make exclusive truth claims which can generate challenging conversations at the best of times and perhaps even more challenging conversations in the context of the political, social, economic and religious contexts of today.

Islam is the second largest religion in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, accounting for 4.4% of the population in the 2011 Census. These statistics and the pressing issues facing our increasingly interdependent world should encourage us to reflect on our thoughts about Islam, our friendship with Muslims and Jesus’ mandate to ‘make disciples of all nations’.
