The Abrahamic Faiths
CROSBY — Christianity, Judaism and Islam have their source in the legendary patriarch, Abraham. They might have been “cousins” but instead history reveals strife, persecution and war between these three faiths. Robert B. Tapp will explore the history and roots of religious differences as well as the evaluation of future inter-faith relations from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Nov. 13 at Heartwood Senior Living Center, Crosby.
Tapp is Professor emeritus of Humanities, Religious Studies, South Asian Studies at the University of Minnesota; Dean Emeritus, The Humanist Institute, New York City and currently on the Faculty, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, University of Minnesota. He has recently published discourse on the value and methods for studying religions.
