Atlas Book Club is meeting on Saturday, November 21. We will start with a simple breakfast as usual and discuss the book while enjoying delicious Turkish dishes. This month’s book is “Islam’s Jesus” by Dr. Zeki Saritoprak.
Join us and invite friends and don’t forget to bring your book suggestions.

“Accessible and readable. Spotlights an important theological theme in a way that both illuminates its internal development in Islamic thought and presents it as a helpful basis for interreligious discussion. The topic is very much in need of teaching and discussion and is a fine example of ‘common ground.’”—John Renard, author of Islam and Christianity

“Contains valuable and fascinating material about how classical Muslim theologians treated various aspects of Jesus and, in particular, the role of Jesus in Islamic eschatology.  Saritoprak brings new insights from contemporary Turkish thinkers to bear on the issues raised by the Jesus figure in Islamic narratives about the Last Days.”—Marcia Hermansen, author of Shah Wali Allah’s Treatises on Islamic Law
