Dr David Coffey on Humanity

Religious studies should be dialogues not monologues.  You need to enrol with others in discussions and dialogue, and the  CMCS courses provide this.  They include a very special combination of people from
different religious backgrounds and cultures, who enrich the discussion and help gaining knowledge and opening eyes to new perspectives. Moreover, the follow-up from the lecturers gives you the chance to develop your skills personally.

Motaz Al-Thaher, CMCS Houston adjunct

Our Vision:

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

Now more than ever our world needs understanding among peoples and nations that is grounded in honesty, transparency, and communication. 

President Robert Sloan, Houston Baptist University

I welcome this sincere effort to understand each other in a loving environment.

Dr. Ghulam Zarquani, Hijaz Muslim College 

I strongly believe that this center is a step 
forward in building a more peaceful world where people of different 
faiths will learn to coexist for a better future.

Azizou Atte-oudeyi, Doctoral student, Rice University

We can all benefit from a humble interaction that is at once both uncompromising and respectful!
