Outside the Faith: 4 Religious Perspectives

As part of Faith Week on January 22, 2009, at an event hosted by the Multi-Faith Resource Team at the University of Guelph, Dr. Timothy Gianotti joined a group of presenters to speak to "Religious perspectives on those who don't believe."

You can listen to an audio recording of the event here.

From the Faith Week website:
Outside the Faith: 4 religious perspectives on those who don't believe
How do we view those who do not hold the same beliefs as us? This is a critical question in a world where religion shapes politics. Does Islamic theology promote the killing of non-Muslims? Are all those that don't believe in Christ destined to hell? Four prominent religious scholars will present their views of those who fall outside their faith, both from a historical and a theological perspective. A Question and Answer period will follow.
Dr. Chris Chapple (Hinduism)
Dr. Jim Pankratz (Christianity)
Rabbi Ed Elkin (Judaism)
Dr. Timothy Gianotti (Islam)
