You may remember back in 2015, when Dr. Larycia Hawkins, then a professor at Wheaton College, posted a photo of herself to social media wearing a hijab.

In the post, she wrote: “I stand in human solidarity with my Muslim neighbor because we are formed of the same primordial clay, descendants of the same cradle of humankind. I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”

Music: The Great Divider?

Initially, Wheaton suspended her because of what they saw as the theological implications of her statement. Eventually, the two parties “reached a confidential agreement under which they will part ways.”

The new documentary Same God—which is directed by a Wheaton graduate—looks at the events from Hawkins’ perspective, and the question of whether Christians and Muslims worship “the same God” as Hawkins’ post said.
