People have been burning books since they have existed. It has always been an act of supreme disrespect and hate. The Nazis did it and we condemn them for it.
On September 11, 2010, a church in Florida intended to hold a public burning of the Qur'an. Delayed by public outcry, they eventually followed through with their threat. Why? Apparently to tell the Muslim world what Christians think of them. Millions of Christians in predominantly Muslim countries were put at risk. Thousands died, were beaten or lost their homes to religious retribution.
The violence was horrific and contemptible. But the actions of this Florida church were ALSO unconscionable and completely contradict the Spirit of Christ.
So, what should be our attitude toward Muslims, including those who attacked Christians? How should we engage them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Norm's guest, Dr. Warren Larsen will highlight the most important things we can do to turn the tide of hatred and prejudice.
