At the heart of my work at the Graduate Theological Union is a passion for studying the conversations, ancient and modern, between the scriptures of the major Abrahamic traditions and their interpretation. I do Tanakh, New Testament, and Qur’an, and their ongoing interpretation today.
I believe that these texts can lead Jews, Christians, and Muslims into shared conversations about what it means to follow God and love your neighbor in our own time.
I believe that in our own time, when Muslims in America are treated with such hatred and suspicion, my work is to Christians people find beauty and meaning in the text that Muslims follow: the Qur’an.
To that end I have been developing a curriculum for parish-level adult education to read Bible and Qur’an in parallel and develop conversations between the two. More on this to come!
