Author encouraging Catholic-Muslim dialogue to speak on Aug. 7 and 8

Jordan Denari Duffner, a Catholic graduate of Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School in Indianapolis and the author of Finding Jesus Among Muslims, will speak on her book and on interreligious dialogue on Aug. 7 and 8 in Indianapolis.

The first event will be held in the dining room of the Indiana Interchurch Center, 1100 W. 42nd St., #10, in Indianapolis, from 6-8 p.m. on Aug. 7. At the event, Duffner will discuss Finding Jesus Among Muslims, which earned second place in the “General Interest Catholic Book” category of the Association of Catholic Publishers’ 2018 Excellence in Publishing Awards.

The second event will take place at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, 5692 Central Ave., in Indianapolis, at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 8, where Duffner will speak on the topic of “Islam and Interreligious Dialogue: How Our Catholic Faith Calls us to Dialogue and Action.”

According to a June 14 interview with Ignatian Solidarity Network, Duffner, who is currently pursuing a doctorate in Theological and Religious Studies at Georgetown University, says her book “is a call for Catholics and other Christians to engage in dialogue with our Muslim brothers and sisters. … [D]ialogue doesn’t draw us away from our faith, but can deepen our relationship with God.”

Both talks are free and will include time for questions and answers, the opportunity to purchase books, and book signing.

For more information on the Aug. 7 event, contact John Clark at the Center for Interfaith Cooperation by phone at 317-603-8874, or by e-mail at john@centerforinterfaithcooperation.org.
