Understanding and Answering Islam

What are the foundational differences between Christianity and Islam? Which is the real Word of God? The Bible or the Qur’an? Do you know what it costs a Muslim to consider Christ?

Islam is no longer distant

In Australia today, as in all Western countries, there are growing Muslim communities. Increasingly many of us have Muslim neighbours and co-workers. Moreover, radical Islam is on the move around the globe in way we were woken up to on 9/11, and are constantly reminded of in global news stories. These developments provide the church with many evangelistic, apologetic, social and political challenges. It is our hope that you will join with RZIM, Arthur Jeffery Centre for the Study of Islam, Melbourne School of Theology and Queensland Theological College in recognising and seeking to respond to these challenges biblically and thoughtfully.

We regularly gather some of the world’s leading Christian scholars researching Islam, as well as some of the greatest contemporary apologists to Muslims. Our speakers represent a wide range of background and bring a wealth of academic and international ministry experience. Their teaching sessions are designed to take us on a journey covering many of the key issues in the Christian encounter with Islam. As always, these conferences will marry apologetic rigor with gospel passion.

Our hope and prayer is that your involvement in these conferences will stretch your mind to understand the nature of the challenge of Islam. We long, too, for the Lord to enlarge your gospel heart for your Muslim neighbours and workmates as we provide you with practical tools for lovingly speaking, and defending, the Gospel of Christ.

These events are designed for families, students, churches, small groups, and anyone interested in the questions raised by the interaction between Islam and Christianity. Please join us in praying for a wonderful time of spiritual renewal and greater understanding of our Muslim friend.

Speakers Include

Dr Andy Bannister, Dr Richard Shumack, Dr Bernie Power, Dr Peter Riddell, Rev Dr Mark Durie
