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
IndonesiaÃÆ’Ã¢ââ€š¬Å¡Ãâ€šÂ 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.
