Is the God that Christians worship the same one called Allah by millions of practicing Muslims? In the winter of 2016, this thorny theological question became very material for Dr. Larycia Hawkins, a professor of political science at Wheaton College and the first Black woman to gain tenure at “the evangelical Harvard.” At the outbreak of Trump’s proposed travel ban, Hawkins posted a message of religious unity to Facebook, little suspecting that she was igniting a media firestorm that would suck her into conservative Christianity’s crisis of conscience. Through tense faculty meetings, student protests, and private soul-searching, Same God follows Hawkins on her mission of radical solidarity. -JK
