Here you will find the resources linked with a series of lectures given by Dr David Coffey's in January-March 2021. The lectures explore the use of ideas which are admitted by both the Qur'an and the Bible in discussions between Muslims and Christians. You can learn about key historical figures, and consider important themes which can form the basis for constructive communication today.
