Bernie Power has been studying Islam and interacting with Muslims for over 40 years. He has degrees in Science, Arts and Theology, and his doctorate compared the Hadith, the early traditions about Muhammad, with biblical teaching. He currently lectures at the Melbourne School of Theology in Islamic studies. He travels to many countries to teach about Islam and to share the good news with Muslims. He has written three books on the Muslim-Christian interface. Bernie’s passion is to teach
Christians about Islam, and Muslims about Jesus
When I lived there [the Middle East] I saw many people had absolute ignorance about Jesus; about who he was, and about what he said an did. And back in Australia I find a similar kind of ignorance by Australian people about Muhammad. But also many Australian people don’t know much about Jesus and many Muslim people have a very fleeting knowledge of Muhammad.
