"While evangelical Christians and Muslims differ as to the content of our faith convictions, there is agreement on the ethics our convictions inspire. By striving to heal the divide as Asma Uddin ably articulates, we can make strides as divergent faith communities toward unity of purpose in service for a thriving humanity."

-- Daniel Harrell, PhD, Editor in Chief  Christianity Today

We spied on some of America's most religious citizens. Will there be a reckoning?

November, 2021

The narrative around religious liberty has, in recent yers, been contentious. Scholars and commentators alike have alleged that recent Supreme Court opinions demonstrate a pro-religion bias and, even more controversially, favoritism of Christians over Muslims. A case argued before the Court on November 8th implicates those precise issues.
