Lesley Hazleton - Psychologist, Reporter, Acclaimed Author, Muhammad Expert

How much of Muhammad is myth and how much truth? How did Islam’s prophet of unity leave behind a seemingly endless legacy of sectarian division? How did this seventh-century life become even more important in the twenty-first century? Lesley Hazleton, author of The First Muslim and After the Prophet, explores these and other questions - including the concept of jihad and the status of women - while providing fresh, challenging insights for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.


Dr. S. Ayse Kadayifci-Orellana - Author, Teacher, and Lecturer on Conflict Resolution

Doctor Kadayifci-Orellana has found that religious conflicts involving Muslim societies can be effectively resolved using distinct peace building approaches, and has demonstrated success on the ground in Pakistan, Palestine, Sudan, Darfur, Chad, Iran and beyond. Solutions are rooted in religious and cultural practices, but can they also work in the more diverse Middle Eastern community at large?
