Opinions and conclusions posted in the Arthur Jeffery Centre for the Study of Islam Bulletin-on-line are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the Arthur Jeffery Centre or its Editors. The Bulletin-on-line is purely an information medium, to inform interested parties of religious trends, discussions and debates. The Bulletin-on-line affirms the free expression of the religious convictions of its authors but rejects hatred towards any persons.
The Arthur Jeffery Centre for the Study of Islam, Melbourne School of Theology, Victoria, Australia has become one of the leading Christian Institutions for the Study of Islam and engagement with Islam around the globe.
Over the years, Australia has welcomed immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers from many different countries, with their own religious and cultural traditions. So, Christians here in Australia need to be equipped to engage effectively to this diverse group of people.
To address this challenge, the Arthur Jeffery Centre for the Study of Islam, through its team of expert teachers and scholars, provides a variety of resources at both an academic and public level for those involved in or desiring to be involved in intercultural engagement.
The Arthur Jeffery Centre Bulletin-on-Line aims to provide a forum for disseminating well-researched information on a wide range of topics relevant to Christian practitioners engaging with Muslims. The Centre’s Occasional Papers is an annual scholarly journal which aims both for excellence in scholarship and application.
