Spring Convocation: Christian Faith and Our Religious Neighbors
April 18-19, 2017
Eden Theological Seminary

What does it mean to love our neighbors when our neighbors do not share our faith? How do Christians participate in a pluralistic religious world without denigrating the faith of others or denying our own? With “Christian Faith and Our Religious Neighbors” and in conjunction with the Armin and Shirley Limper Program in Christianity and World Religions, Eden Seminary brings together three leading scholars on Christianity and pluralism to consider these questions and re-imagine Christianity’s relationship with other faiths.
