Muslim Immigration & Christian Politics (JSIS Talk, 3/5/2019)
Posted: 3/4/2019 (Local Events)
In an age of political fear and fragmentation, we invite you to join us for an important discussion of religion, immigration, and political hospitality. Millions of Muslims have migrated into Europe and North America over the past 50 years. Their arrival has ignited a series of fierce public debates on religious freedom and pluralism, tolerance and free speech, headscarves and airports, gender and race, and so much more. With each passing year the debates only seem to become more heated, complex, and fearful. Western Christians are debating amongst themselves about how they should respond to their new Muslim neighbors.
Dr. Matthew Kaemingk is the author of a new book Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear. He serves as an assistant professor of Christian Ethics at Fuller Theological Seminary. In this public lecture, Dr. Kaemingk will not only examine how Western Christians are currently responding to Muslim immigration, he will develop and discuss his alternative political ethic of Christian hospitality and pluralism. Responding to Dr. Kaemingk will be Dr. David Leong, Associate Professor of Missiology at Seattle Pacific University & Seminary.
