Building bridges of respect between Christians and Muslims while seeking truth and glorifying Christ
Bridge Trust USA sponsors:
The creation of Biblical commentaries for Islamic contexts
Our most recent project continues to thrive.
Center for Muslim & Christian Studies, Houston
One of its major focuses is the teaching of international online courses. All courses are co-taught by Christian and Muslim scholars, selected from an international teaching panel.
Genesis 1-11: Bud of theology, grandmother of the sciences, seedbed of the Holy Books.
The first commentary in the new series of Bible commentaries from Muslim contexts is now out in English. The Bengali version will be out in January 2023.
This ground-breaking commentary is co-authored by a team from the Bible college we sponsor in Bangladesh and Dr Ida Glaser of the Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies, Oxford and the Center for Muslim & Christian Studies, Houston.
The Mary B. Coffey Memorial Fund
Mary Coffey (1909-2020) prayed for Bridge Trust USA and for its board and its projects from its foundation in 2002 until her death in February 2020. She asked that memorial thanksgiving gifts should be given to Bridge Trust USA for use in Bible college projects, in particular in Bangladesh, where she lived with her husband Otis from 1956-1971. We continue this fund in her memory.
Target: $100,000 by December 31st.
