with The Rt. Rev. Julian Dobbs, Convocation of Anglicans in North America
Friday, May 11th, 2012 6:30 – 8:00 pm At St. John the Beloved, Adult Education Room, 6420 Linway Terrace, McLean VA 22101
Many people believe that all faith–all religions are worshipping the God of the Bible, they just go about it through different means and in a variety of different ways. In this presentation Bishop Julian Dobbs will explore the nature and character of the God of the Bible and the God of Islam by looking at similarities, differences and divergences. From a Christological foundation in the Gospels of the New Testament, Bishop Dobbs will examine the Jesus who is revealed as God the Son with the Isa [Jesus] of the Koran and share insights from Christians in the Muslim world who faithfully declare the Gospel once for all entrusted to the saints.
The Rt. Rev. Julian M. Dobbs is a Bishop in the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA), a missionary initiative of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion).
