Rev. Ben Daniel will discuss his new book. Are Muslims infiltrating American society? What does Islam really teach about women's roles? Does the Qur'an condone violence? Bay Area Presbyterian pastor Ben Daniel tackles common stereotypes and misconceptions that tend to define Islam in the popular imagination. Daniel also looks at Christianity's own history of violence and explores what he calls "the American cult of fear," particularly as it relates to the rise of Islamophobia in the United States. Blending travel narrative, interviews, and well-crafted storytelling, Daniel helps debunk the myths and put a human face on Islam in America.
The event is free and open to the public.
