This new resource is ideal for those working in the context of church projects which serve Muslim people in their neighbourhood, friendship houses, or those who have opportunity to share faith conversations on a regular basis. It may also be useful in school settings and interfaith meetings.
It is a tool which enables groups of 'everyday' Muslim and Christian people to talk about what we understand about God, through the listening of and telling of the same prophet's story from both the Qur'an and the Bible.
Starting with commonality and moving on to difference we cover the stories of Jonah, then Joseph, Noah, Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus. Together we learn how these stories teach us about God and what they might have to say to us today.
Myths about ‘the other’ are dismantled, fear and suspicion turn to love and respect, deep things are shared, new in-sights gained, and strong bonds are developed.
Prophets Stories was initiated in situ in Bristol; now used in other cities. It was created by Jan Pike, is published by the Bible Society. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
