Event description

Description

Join Sherene Hassan to learn about the divine books from the three Abrahamic faiths on show in the World of the book exhibition: the Jewish Torah, the Christian Bible and the Islamic Qur'an.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam are often referred to as ‘religions of the book’ – find out about each book’s sacred nature, the special relationship devotees have to their texts, and the relationships between the three books.

This event is part of SalamFest.

Sherene Hassan is the education director of the Islamic Museum of Australia and has been involved in interfaith dialogue for nearly two decades.
