How should Christian broadcasters approach the religion of the Muslims?
The question will be on the minds of those meeting in Nashville next month at the NRB International Christian Media Convention and Exposition. Organizers have announced a session titled “The Challenge of Islam.” It will focus on what they describe as “Islamic challenges to theology, the Great Commission, culture and security.” The term Great Commission refers to the instruction of Jesus to his disciples to spread his teachings.
The organizers said a morning session will include “theologians, expositors, apologists and a broadcaster who is a former Muslim” talking about how Christian broadcasters should approach the issue from a doctrinal and Gospel perspective, “and how should we fulfill the Great Commission among Muslim peoples?”
An afternoon session addresses “Islam: Cultural and Security Challenges” including a discussion of “how Islamic culture challenges the Judeo-Christian concept of human rights,” and what Sharia Law means for women. Attendees, according to the announcement, “will also learn about religious persecution and slavery under Islam.”
