Reading the Qur’an as a Non-Muslim

An evening with Garry Wills
Saturday, Oct. 7, 6-8 PM, Highland Presbyterian Church

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, writer, journalist and Catholic scholar Garry Wills discusses his groundbreaking work What the Qur’an Meant, at an upcoming Parish Resource Center event sponsored by Saint James Episcopal Church. Garry Wills has established himself as an authority on religion, American politics, and how they intersect.

The Qur’an is sacred to roughly 1.6 billion people. After a lifetime spent thinking and writing about Christianity, Wills felt compelled both personally and professionally to read the Qur’an in order to better understand the world around him. For Americans, understanding the Islamic faith has never been more important than it is now; Wills’ book offers Christian and non-Muslim readers the opportunity to expand their understanding of Islam through direct analysis of the text.
