What does the Qur’an actually say about veiling women? Does it justify religious war? Garry Wills, one of America’s greatest religious scholars, leads us through an insightful and erudite study of these questions and more in this opportunity to learn together about Islam’s most sacred text.
In What the Qur’an Meant, Wills turns his Pulitzer Prize-winning writing and lifetime of religious study to help combat the false information too often spread about the Islamic faith. Through the eyes of a sympathetic outsider, Wills will help us frame a night of interfaith dialogue and empathetic curiosity.
