Christian Apologetics to Islam
Dr. Joshua Lingel
The aim of this 11 hour course is to equip the Christian to effectively engage in evangelism with Muslims through a deeper understanding of the Islamic Worldview. Muslims often raise polemical questions about the Bible, the nature of Jesus, and the origins and development of Christianity. This course discusses a response to those critical questions while assessing the origins and early development of Islam. The research has been peer-reviewed, and covers modern critical scholarship on the Biography of Muhammad, the six genres of Islamic historical tradition, as well as source and textual criticism of the Qur’an.
Dr. Jay Smith
“Radical” means to go back to the root. In Islam this means to go back to the 7th-Century violence of Muhammad, Allah and the early Muslim conquests. In Christianity, however, it means to be devoted followers of Jesus, Paul and the first century churches great commission.
Muslim Evangelism means to love Muslims enough, to be a faithful witness to the gospel to them in our modern day. Christian apologist Jay Smith communicates the reality of resurgent Islam and it’s impact on the Church’s witness to the Muslim world. This course attempts to equip Christians with tools to answer the most pressing questions of our day.
Christian and Islamic Theological Issues

Dr. Tavassoli compares the concepts of God, Man, Christ, and the Scriptures in each worldview, and explains how these differences can be confronted when speaking with our Muslim neighbors. Presented from the unique perspective of a former Muslim, this class is sure to reveal an inside look into the theological differences between the two faiths.
