Reply To: How should we deal with the topic of the Crusades, both in our own thinking and in engagement with Muslims?

Hi everyone, it has been very helpful for me to read these discussion posts. I have always struggled with the Crusades, I think of it as a very dark part of Christian history. What concerns me is that there are still Christians today that will defend the Crusades and think of the Crusaders as heroes. Reading everyone’s thoughts here is very helpful, and is giving me new ideas for how I can begin to tackle this very difficult topic.
