Episode 5: Building Bridges -- Mormonism and Islam (Part 1)


The episode where Ben and Shiloh have Christopher Hurtado on as a guest to speak on why Mormons should care and desire to study more about Islam. We talk about the importance of the Arabic language in Islamic culture, how the Arab Muslims and people are genuinely open and receptive to the message of the restored gospel, the Qur’an, Islamic culture, importance of genealogy to Islamic culture, sharia law, and many other great topics that seek to build bridges of understanding and brotherhood for reconciliation and peace.

“A cabinet minister in Egypt, aware of the common ground shared by Muslims and Latter-day Saints, once remarked to Elder Howard W. Hunter of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles that ‘if a bridge is ever built between Christianity and Islam it must be built by the Mormon Church’.” (James Toronto, “A Latter-day Saint Perspective on Muhammad“).
