Original research and writing are an essential basis for teaching and for learning what is true.

Each member of the academic team at CMCS Houston is expected to be researching and writing.  We will also be developing focused research projects.

Dr Ida Glaser heads the 'Reading the Bible in the context of Islam' research project at the Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies, Oxford.  She is co-series editor of the 'Routledge Reading the Bible in Islamic Context' series, and of the forthcoming Langham 'Bible Commentaries from Muslim Contexts' series.  

The next major event in 'Reading the Bible in the Context of Islam' is a conference on 'Reading the Gospels in Islamic Context', to be held in Oxford 7-9th September 2020 (or online if COVID-19 related restrictions so require).


Dr David Coffey is working towards publications based on his doctoral studies of the history of Muslim-Christian dialogue. 


His particular interest is in how prominent Christians and Muslims have explored truths admitted by both their Scriptures; for example, common beliefs about God as Creator and about Jesus as Messiah.
