Alan Guenther is Assistant Professor of History at Briercrest College and Seminary, Canada.


A period spent in Pakistan as a missionary sparked his interest in the history of Islam, and on his return to Canada he completed MA and PhD study at the Institute of Islamic Studies, McGill University.  His research interests include the development of Muslim society in modern South Asia, and the history of Christian-Muslim relations in that region as well as globally.  Alan also studies the historical rise of the non-Western Christian Church and its intersection with Western missionary efforts and colonialism.
