Ratio Christi event slideA captivating lecture, “Seeing Each Other as Human Again” will be given by Abdu Murray at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 17 in Scholars Hall 109. You may have noticed that the world has become alarmingly polarized. From politics, to religion, to social issues, we have come to see those who disagree with us as the enemy and even less than human. Is there a better way to engage in dialogue without compromising our convictions? Can we engage in debate without hate? Abdu Murray offers ways forward from a Christian perspective.

Abdu is an international speaker and author on the intersections of the Christian and the questions of culture. He is the President of Embrace the Truth International and the author of several books including Saving Truth – Finding Meaning and Clarity in a Post-Truth World, Grand Central Question – Answering the Critical Concerns of the Major Worldviews, and his forthcoming More Than a White Man’s Religion – Why the Gospel Has Never Been Merely White, Male-Centered, or Just Another Religion. For most of his life, Abdu was a proud Muslim until a nine-year historical, philosophical, theological, and scientific investigation pointed him to the Christian faith.

Abdu has spoken to diverse international audiences and has participated in debates and dialogues across the globe. He holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Michigan and earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School.

Abdu lives in the Metro Detroit area with his wife, Nicole, and their three children.
