Engaging with Islam Course: Opening Overview
Before starting the 'Engaging With Islam' course Samuel Green recommends watching this extended introduction to the main issues covered.
SUMMARY: The absence of Islam in the Bible means Christians do not learn about Islam naturally it is optional however, the situation for Muslims is the exact opposite. Christianity is a major topic in the Qur’an. The Qur’an directly engages with all major Christian beliefs, and instructs Muslims to reject and refute them. A Muslim who learns Islam, learns to reject Christianity and challenge Christians; it is just part of being Muslim; it is compulsory. The result of this situation is that when a Christian and Muslim talk the Christian may feel unprepared. They may not know the teachings of Islam, its history or what questions to ask. The Muslim, however, may feel quite prepared, and be well equipped with various books, leaflets, videos, Bible verses, and questions to ask. Of course not all Muslims learn their faith or are zealous, but it is still important for Christians understand the preparation Islam gives Muslims so they know what to expect and be prepared.
