This summer we will use The Great Courses’ “Great World Religions: Islam,” presented by Professor John L. Esposito, Georgetown University. Topics include Islam Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow; The Five Pillars of Islam; Muhammad— Prophet and Statesman; God’s Word—the Quranic Worldview; Women and Change in Islam; Islam in the West; The Muslim Community—Faith and Politics; and Islam at the Crossroads, among others. Each lecture is followed by a stimulating group discussion to encourage active minds. Additional outside reading can be helpful but is not required. A bibliography will be available.
