You Can’t Say that! – son of God and other familial terms in Muslim contexts
We look at a theological subject with profound implications when working amongst Muslims. The Christian understanding of the Trinitarian oneness of God contrasts with the Islamic view of absolute oneness. So how should we use terms such as Son of God and Father in our dealings with Muslims? What are the implications for Scripture translation, for evangelism and discipleship tools, and in face-to-face encounters?
The Global Connections Muslim World Forum continues to examine issues which are relevant to the work and activities of agencies and churches engaging with Muslims around the world and locally.
The day will include speakers, discussion, and time for prayer and networking.
