Cross and Crescent: Islam and Christianity in Conflict

PHL 2282 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Quarter
Description Examines the likelihood of continued confrontation between Islam and Christianity, further exacerbated by zero population growth, aging, and wealth of nations embracing Christianity and the poverty, rapid population growth, and youthfulness in the Muslim world. By 2050 more than 60 percent of the planet’s population will be Christian or Muslim. Economic conditions, ineffective governments, and demographics continue to foster the growth of fundamentalist, extremist, and confrontational forms of Islam. The most dynamic growth in Christianity comes from conservative, evangelical, and Pentecostal areas, particularly in Africa and Asia, where Islam is also growing rapidly. Focuses on Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
