Our Vision:

Our vision is to see Muslim and Christian relationships transformed through shared academic study and by following the example of Christ.

 

Who We Are:

The Center for Muslim and Christian Studies Houston is an independent research and study center serving the Texas region’s universities, churches and mosques.  The Center researches questions of scholarly interest and social importance along the Muslim and Christian interface.

What We Do:

Our scholars meet on an equal footing of mutual respect and a commitment to seeking truth.  They do interdisciplinary study and research which is relevant to interactions between Muslims and Christians today.  This includes comparing Scriptures, exploring history, studying current relationships, and researching matters of mutual concern.  They make the research available to the Texas region’s universities, seminaries, government, churches and mosques,  through teaching, seminars, workshops, and publications.
