Upcoming Presentation on Islam


Hey everyone,

Chris Neiswonger from apologetics.com and I will be doing a presentation on Islam for the next few weeks. We will be focusing on Islam's origins, basic beliefs, and radical Islam and the implications for international law and public policy. We will first be doing the presentation at First Artesia Christian Reformed Church. We will also be presenting it at Branch of Hope Orthodox Presbyterian Church of Torrance CA, and the First Southern Baptist Church of Downey CA. We will then be doing the Apologetics.com radio show on the same topic. I will be sure to give you the link when we have it.

Please keep us in prayer as we prepare, and pray for those who will be attending.

Doug

I'll be praying. I was involved in Muslim evangelism, specifically, for a couple of yrs--a tough crowd to evangelize, but, in general, very nice people.

What's the primary thrust of your presentation going to be? I.e. informative on the various sects within Islam, how to evangelize, both?

Hey Bobby,

The primary thrust will be Islam's origins, beliefs, and then we plan on dealing with radical Islam that we see today.

Be sure to let me know of any good resources I should be checking out.

PS. I will be spending a little time on the origins of the different sects, and how to witness. But this won't be the main push. We will be speaking to mostly Christians so it will be more informative.

Sounds great, Doug! I'll be in prayer.

There is a good book on Mohammed's life written by 'Ali Dashti called 23 Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad. This book almost got him killed, and I think it was only published and made public after his death. He provides a "critical" review of Mohammad's life--which means he down-plays some of the more "god-like" miraculous ora that folk-Islam has wrapped Mohammad with. It's insightful. Publishers are: Mazda Publishers, Costa Mesa, CA 1994.
