In March 2008 a cover story of Christian-Muslim conflicts in Nigeria appeared in the Atlantic. The title was "Which Religion Will Win?" In many ways this is the question that has for centuries been driving the engine of the darker side of Christian-Muslim relations. In this presentation, Professor Scott Alexander will examine the nature of this "Triumphalism" in Chrisitian-Muslim relations. Is Christian-Muslim competition essentially a struggle for ultimate supremacy, or do these traditions hold deep within them an alternative paradigm for interreligious competition?
