Description

A major, current, worldwide threat to religious freedom, freedom of speech and the press, is attempts to stifle religious and political discussion in the name of preventing insults to religion. This pertains to all religions but is now especially prevalent with respect to Islam. The twenty-first century has witnessed repeated eruptions of violence worldwide and such matters are now in the news every week.

Internationally acclaimed scholar Paul Marshall, Ph.D., is the Baylor University holder of the Jerry and Susie Wilson Chair in Religious Freedom at the Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR). Marshall also serves as a research professor within Baylors department of political science. Marshalls current research is focused primarily on understanding how Muslims and Christians are able to live and work together peacefully in Indonesia''â‚š‚ the worlds most populous Muslim country. Marshall is in frequent demand for lectures and media appearances and has been featured on ABC Nightly News; CNN; PBS; FOX; the British, Australian, Canadian, South African and Japanese Broadcasting Corporations; and Al Jazeera. His work has been published in, or is the subject of, articles in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Times, The Boston Globe, The Dallas Morning News, The Christian Science Monitor, First Things, New Republic, The Weekly Standard, Readers Digest and many other newspapers and magazines.
