Dr Bernie Power has been studying Islam and interacting with Muslims for over 40 years. Bernie has degrees in Science, Arts and Theology, and his doctorate compared the Hadith, the early traditions about Muhammad, with biblical teaching. He currently lectures at the Melbourne School of Theology in Islamic studies.

He has taught in several Islamic universities in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. He engages with Muslims in Australia, and this includes public debates with Islamic scholars. He travels to many countries to teach about Islam and to share the good news with Muslims. He has written four books on the Muslim-Christian interface. Bernie’s passion is to teach Christians about Islam, and Muslims about Jesus.
In his latest publication ‘Storytellers: Bringing Muslims Home’, Bernie Power shows how the art of storytelling can be used to answer the questions that Muslims ask about the Christian faith.
