Course #2 - Christian Apologetics to Islam - Video Course - Dr. Joshua Lingel
Mission Muslim World University Video Course #2 (MMWU.ORG)
Dr. Joshua Lingel
COURSE DESCRIPTION - 11 Hours of Video Teaching (Mp4's on a USB)
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.
Subjects in this course also include:
- Islamic worldview
- The Life and supposed-Prophethood of Muhammad
- The miraculous nature of the Qur’an
- Textual criticism of the Qur’an
- Shariah Law
- The nature of Jesus
- The origins and development of Christianity
- Practical Guidelines to being involved in the Great Commission
The course will assist students in becoming equipped with responses to critical questions (philosophical and theological issues) raised by Muslims that attempt to undermine the foundations of the Christian faith and prove it to be self-contradictory, flawed, or false (This is a defense). Secondly, this class will provide the students with information on Islam and an introduction to polemics that undermine ones confidence in trusting the Islamic historical origins, philosophy or doctrines as true (This is the “offense”).
