Evangelicals, Islam and Humanitarian Aid

The Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) held a meeting in May 2003, just after the US invasion of Iraq, to address the role of evangelical relief organizations in post-war Iraq and related questions about their methods of evangelism, public rhetoric, and relationship to US foreign policy. This meeting explored several issues pertaining to how evangelical groups conduct themselves in post-conflict countries, with special focus on Islamic countries. Lamin Sanneh of Yale Divinity School provided background information and academic expertise for the discussion.
