In 2013 we spoke to Fr Damian Howard SJ about a course he leads called Understanding Islam. You can listen here.
The main aim of the course is to explore how we relate to Muslims and understand Islam as Catholics.
We've decided to take it on a little further and record a series of four podcasts doing exactly that.
We look at...
Part One: Origins of Islam
Part Two: Islamic Beliefs
Part Three: Islamic Law
Part Four: Christianity and Islam
Our studio guest, Fr Damian Howard is a Jesuit priest and Lecturer in Theology at Heythrop College, University of London.
He combines work in pastoral and spiritual ministries with teaching and research in theology, contemporary spirituality and interreligious dialogue, especially between Christians and Muslims.
Fr Damian's the author of Being Human in Islam: The Impact of the Evolutionary Worldview (2011).
You can download or listen to the all four parts of our podcast series by using the links or media players to the right of this article.
