Her handler det om historiske paralleller – en lidt speciel forelæsning med vægt på kirkens rolle. Fra The Family Research Council 26. januar 2012:
Responding to Islam: Lessons from Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Karl Barth, and Bishop George Bell
Mere tekst under videoen:
Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Karl Barth. Bishop George Bell. Dismissed, derided, and in one case even martyred, each of these Christian leaders took a stand against the threat of Nazism.
Today, a similar threat faces Christians in the US, across Europe, and much more dramatically throughout the Muslim world. Radical Islam’s jihadist ideology does not peacefully coexist with Christianity. And Christian leaders-both political and pastoral-should know more about the threats they face.
Join us at noon on Thursday, January 26th as author, pastor, and human rights advocate Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo explains the threat of radical Islam and offers a clear and Christian response.
Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo is director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity, a Christian research institute specializing in the status of Christian minorities in the Muslim world. He is also international director of the Barnabas Fund. Dr. Sookhdeo is a prolific lecturer and author who holds a Ph.D. from London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies and a D.D. from Western Seminary, Oregon, USA. In 2001, Dr. Sookhdeo was awarded the Coventry Cathedral International Prize for Peace and Reconciliation, and in 1990, he was given the Templeton Project Trust prize for progress in religion.
The main ministry of the Barnabas Fund is to send financial support to projects which help Christians where they suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. The projects aim to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.
