Enlightenment Islam?

Moore, Michael Scott
November 2010
Miller-McCune;Nov/Dec2010, Vol. 3 Issue 6, p15
The article challenges the move of the European higher institutions to offer courses in Islamic theology, which might sound to other people as evidence of Eurabia. It argues that the Islamic Studies program educates not just theologians and next generation of religious academics but also Islamic theology specialists. It notes that the program will educate Europe's own imams, which have been trained abroad in Arabic or Turkish, who cannot understand the problems or their own flocks.
