Meet The Pope's Counselor On Islam

From Insight Scoop:
Professor Lamin Sanneh, who is the D. Willis James Professor of Missions & World Christianity at Yale University, has been appointed consultor to Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (hat tip to Catholic World News). The October 2003 issue of Christianity Today has a fascinating interview with Sanneh, who describes his conversion to Catholicism and the major misunderstandings that exist between Muslims and Christians.
The Christianity Today article is well worth the read. His analysis of Christianity in the West, particuarly the battle within the Anglican Communion, is very enlightening.
