Understanding Islam

Dr Chris Hewer will explain the religious, Islamic issues involved in the contemporary situation and provide an insight into Jihad in the context of current affairs. Dr Hewer has worked in Christian Muslim relations, based in Birmingham, since 1986, and from 1999 to 2005 was Advisor on Inter-Faith Relations to the Bishop of Birmingham. He now works in London as the St Ethelburger Fellow in Christian Muslim relations. His newly published book in ‘Understanding Islam – The First Ten Steps’ is widely admired for its informative and accessible style – never was a book so necessary.
