Admission: Free, open to the public

Have you wanted to know more about the differences and commonalities among Christianity, Judaism, and Islam? Students, faculty & community members are invited to attend a panel discussion by three Appalachian State faculty members of the book, The Children of Abraham: Judaism, Christianity, Islam by F. E. Peters.  The three panelists, Dr. Alan Hauser (Dept. of Philosophy & Religion), Dr. Maria Lichtmann (Dept. of Philosophy & Religion), & Dr. Rahman Tashakkori (Dept. of Computer Science), will use this classic comparative study to discuss the interconnections between these three major faiths.

Copies of the book are available in the Browsing section of the Appalachian State University Library.  Students, faculty, and community members are encouraged to check-out the book and participate in discussion.  But familiarity with the book is not necessary to appreciate this event.   The event will be Tuesday, Nov 12, at 5:00 PM in the Library auditorium Room 114.

The event is presented by ASU Library in conjunction with the Muslim Students Association as the third event of the Muslim Journeys Bridging Cultures “Let’s Talk About It” Program, a series of book and film discussions. The Program is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association.  This series follows upon the Muslim Journeys Bridging Cultures Bookshelf Program begun in spring 2013 which provided materials related to Muslim cultures to the University Library.
