Waging Peace on Islam Part 2

I just returned from an excellent lecture at Milligan College regarding Islam and Christianity. Paul-Gordon Chandler spoke for about 90 minutes then answered questions. He is an Episcopal priest in Egypt. He spoke about Muslim followers of Christ. These are folks who remain Muslim yet follow the teachings of Jesus in the Gospels. He greatly impressed me with his appreciation and understanding of the Muslim faith and the connections we can make. All of his books were sold out so I will have to pick one up. I recommend it highly. Here is his web page.
