Can Jesus be a bridge between Islam and Christianity? Saint John’s Cathedral to host Mustafa Akyol.
On May 3 at 7 p.m. Saint John’s Cathedral will host Mustafa Akyol. Mr. Akyol will be speaking about how Jesus can be a bridge between Islam and Christianity. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

He has published six books in Turkish. His 2011 book, “Islam Without Extremes: A Muslim Case for Liberty” was published in the United States the W.W. Norton. The book was long-listed for the Lionel Gelber Prize, a literary prize awarded by the University of Toronto for the best nonfiction book in English that seeks to deepen public debate on significant international issues, and praised by The Financial Times as “a forthright and elegant Muslim defense of freedom.” The book has been published also in Turkish, Malay and Indonesian.
In Feb 2017, another book by Mr. Akyol, “The Islamic Jesus: How the King of the Jews Became a Prophet of the Muslims” was published by St. Martins Press. The book has received praise from the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, The National Catholic Reporter, and more.
