Welcome to week one of Understanding Islam. The first four weeks of the class we are using a video series called “Christianity and Islam” by Dr. Timothy George of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama. This week we saw part one and discussed some of the questions in the Companion Guide. Below is the audio from the class and a link to the companion guide, but if you want to see the video and missed the class we can make some arrangements if you live locally. Just see me or post a comment. After the audio is a set of links to articles and videos for you to study more about the subject if you so desire. The first video is a full length movie that presents the negative side of Islam and the six part series after that is a documentary on Islam from the History Channel.
Here is the Video Companion Guide
