Understanding Islam and Christian relationships seminar

  • Cairns Road Baptist Church Bristol, BS6 7TH United Kingdom (map)


Qur’an in the Light of Christ

Saturday 9 September 2017
10:30am to 3:30pm
Cairns Road Baptist Church, Bristol, BS6 7TH

A unique opportunity to learn about Islam from a Biblical perspective and how to relate to Muslims

The seminar is presented by Dr. Ron George who has worked in North Africa, Iran, India and other lands. He has a doctorate in Intercultural studies and is passionate about understanding Islam as well as our own faith. He first started with Operation Mobilisation in  1962 and continues to teach and train missionaries today.

One of the key current issues is that of Islam in the 21st Century. Ron George has delivered two superb seminars on this theme for my fellowship. He combines knowledge, expert communication skills and a love for Christ and for Muslims without compromise. I have no hesitation in recommending Ron as an academic who can
speak to the layman and is a missionary who is always listening and learning.
— Rev Jack Lamb, Belfast
