Muslim Journeys — it starts with a bookshelf

As part of Islam Awareness Week (March 18-22), faculty member and reference librarian Wade Lee led a lively book discussion last night in the Main Campus student union with students and others of various faiths.  The event, which was co-sponsored by the UT-Muslim Students Association, featured discussion of F.E. Peters’ Children of Abraham: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, a book which explores the shared history and religious commonalities of these monotheistic faiths, but also their separate development in relation to each other and the political, philosophical, and religious environment until the start of the Middle Ages.  The Peters book is just one of a bookshelf of new items acquired by the libraries as part of a grant recently awarded to Professor Lee.  If you are interested in reading this book or one of a variety of others, or would like to know more about the special programming in store for UT and the wider community in 2013, please explore our Muslim Journeys LibGuide or follow the library’s blog.
