Franciscan University Presents
Islam and ISIS
Millions of Christians around the world live in fear for their lives. And perhaps nowhere is that fear so great as it is in the Middle East, especially in the territory dominated by a militant group of Islamic extremists known as ISIS.
Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, will discuss the origins and goals of ISIS and how Christians in the West are called to respond to this emerging threat with host Michael Hernon, vice president of Advancement at Franciscan University, and panelists Dr. Regis Martin and Dr. Scott Hahn of Franciscan University’s Theology Department.
The next Presents show airs on Sunday, Feb. 7 at 10pm and Thursday, Feb. 11 at 5am.
Robert Spencer, Founder and Director of Jihad Watch, delivers his talk entitled “The Theological Aspects of Islam That Lead to Jihad.” Mr. Spencer’s talk was sponsored by the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
Robert Spencer, the Director of Jihad Watch, speaks about “Evangelization and Islam: The Dangers, Difficulties, and Rewards of Sharing the Faith with Muslims” at the 2012 Defending the Faith Conference here on campus in Steubenville, Ohio.
