Mikva, Rehman, and Ruby
Rabbi Rachel Mikva is a professor of Jewish studies at Chicago Theological Seminary and senior faculty fellow of its InterReligious Institute. Dangerous Religious Ideas: The Deep Roots of Self-Critical Faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam argues that all religious ideas are dangerous, even those that stand at the heart of faith. Sabeeha Rehman is the author of the award-winning memoir Threading My Prayer Rug. Journalist Walter Ruby is an activist in Muslim-Jewish relations who has organized hundreds of twinning events bringing together thousands of Jews and Muslims in countries around the world. We Refuse to Be Enemies: How Muslims and Jews Can Make Peace, One Friendship at a Time, written with Sabeeha Rehman, addresses how the two authors overcame their biases, the principles in their faiths that unite them, the impact of interfaith dialogue, and their challenges in bringing the two faith communities together. Sponsored in part by Interfaith Center Arkansas.
