This week, Zac and Ashley discuss how Christians have at times fueled Islamophobia and what we can do to combat anti-Muslim bias in ourselves in our communities with Jordan Denari Duffner. Jordan, a scholar of Muslim-Christian relations, has faced pushback for her work from fellow Catholics—but says her study of Islam and friendships with Muslims have strengthened her own faith.

Our Guest: Jordan Denari Duffner, author of Islamophobia: What Christians Should Know (and Do) about Anti-Muslim Discrimination
