Introduction to Islam
The purpose of the class is two-fold. Part of this class will involve a standard introduction to Islam; historically, the rise of it, the key features and figures in the religion. The other part involves a very careful study of the Qur’an. You will spend a lot of time studying the Qur’an, looking at key verses and passages. By the end of this class, you will have a clear picture of the beliefs of Muslims as well as a clear working view of what's actually taught in the Qur'an.
Dr. Tennent also shows how Allah and the God of the Bible are different. He gives you specifics that will help you share your faith with someone who believes in Islam in a way that they can understand who Jesus is and what it means to live in a relationship with God.
