CIU and the Anniversary of 9/11

September 12, 2010

The anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States has brought about a lot of discussion on the relationship between Christians and Muslims. The director of the Zwemer Center for Muslim Studies at Columbia Internatinal University, Dr. Warren Larson, is often called on for a biblical perspective in the issue..

Larson was among Columbia-area religious leaders who were asked to comment on a Florida pastor's threat to burn Qurans on 9-11. Read the article in The State newspaper of Columbia at: http://www.thestate.com/2010/09/10/1457468/local-religious-leaders-relieved.html

Larson was also a guest on the nationwide broadcast of Compassion Radio on Sept. 10. A podcast of the interview with Larson is available at: http://compassionradio.com/broadcast/index.asp.

The leading magazine among evangelicals also sought out Larson for comment. Read the article "Qur'an Burning: The Neverending Story" in "Christianity Today." http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2010/septemberweb-only/46-51.0.html

And Larson will also be featured on a Webinar hosted by CrossGlobal Link on Sept. 14 at 2:00 p.m. It's called "Waging Peace on Islam - A Christian Response to Islam in North America." For information on the Webinar visit: http://www.crossgloballink.org/Webinar_Registration
