Mark Robert Anderson is a lecturer on Islam, the Qur’an and Muslim-Christian dialogue. He has a Masters degree in Islamic Studies from McGill University and another in Christian theology from Westminster Theological Seminary, and also ten years’ experience living in the Arab world. He is the author of The Qur’an in Context: A Christian Exploration, a college textbook on understanding the Qur’an. Mark’s passion is to help people understand Islam and the challenges facing Muslims and Christians today in a way that is fair to all and to foster Muslim-Christian dialogue. He lives with his wife in Vancouver, Canada.


Mark believes Christians should take the Qur’an seriously, just as they ask Muslims to take the Bible seriously. Offering a gateway into the Qur’an’s original world and worldview, The Qur’an in Context is a reliable guide for those who want to explore Islam’s holy book.
