Seeking a Theological Encounter

(p.71) Seeking a Theological Encounter
Christian Lives Given to the Study of Islam

Etienne Renaud

Fordham University Press

The Frenchman, Renaud, encountered Islam in Algeria before joining the Missionaries of Africa and studies in Tunisia and PISAI. He recounts a life divided between active work amongst Muslims in the Yemen, Syria and the Sudan, academic study and teaching, and service to his fellow White Fathers. The chapter calls for an engagement with Islam on the level of theology that is not side-tracked into politics and sociology. Theological reflection is offered on themes such as Trinity, Incarnation and Salvation, before turning to the heart of Christian-Muslim relations in spiritual experience. The fascination and attraction of Islam is explored and a theory developed concerning the appeal of religion for the elite and for the masses.
