Hizmet Reads – Online Book Club

Hizmet Studies

Our upcoming Hizmet Reads focus will be in a slightly different format, engaging critically with one of the two recently published works of Professor Paul Weller (Faculty of Theology and Religion, Regent’s Park College — University of Oxford, Oxford, UK) titled, “Fethullah Gülen’s Teaching and Practice: Inheritance, Context, and Interactive Development” published through Palgrave Mcmillan.

The discussion series will continue every week concentrating on a chapter each week. Streamed live through our YouTube channel every Monday, 7 PM, the discussion series will begin on the 24th of October and continue through to the 28th of November 2022.

The discussion can be accessed through the following link https://www.youtube.com/HizmetStudies/live, and, all viewers are encouraged to read the relevant chapter and type any possible questions they may have to Professor Weller in the chat section.
