St Marks Centre for Radical Christianity is delighted to welcome Tariq Ramadan, Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies at Oxford University to St Mark’s Church, Broomhill for its Spring Conference.
Tariq’s searching analysis of the challenges involved in creating pluralist societies as well as his equally insightful assessment of areas of common ground informs a radical and progressive vision for how faith traditions could not only bring the best out in one another, but also become a force for good within the world. Tariq is a prophetic voice who speaks intelligently and eloquently, with passion and conviction.
His latest books include: The Quest for Meaning, Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism (Penguin, 2010); What I believe (OUP, 2009); Radical Reform, Islamic Ethics and Liberation (OUP, 2008). Website : www.tariqramadan.com
Tariq will deliver 2 lectures during the day.
Lecture 1 The Quest for Meaning – Tariq will outline the approach to pluralism presented in his recent book, The Quest for Meaning, Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism (Penguin, 2010)
Lecture 2 Jesus and Mohammed – Building on the previous lecture, Tariq will explore the commonalities and divergences between these two founders of world faith traditions.
