21 May Islam and Christianity: Theological Continuity or Discontinuity? A Conversation with Dr Mark Durie
In an episode of the Political Animals Podcast Jonathan Cole talks to Mark Durie. They explore the theological relationship between Christianity (and Judaism) and Islam, with a particular focus on explaining the large presence of Biblical material in the Qur’an and whether this constitutes theological continuity or discontinuity. The pair also discuss the implications for inter-faith dialogue and pluralism in Western liberal democracies of Mark’s thesis that Islam constitutes a theological innovation rather than a continuous development from Christianity and Judaism.
