Challenge of Islam (Part Two): Defending the Christian Faith
By: Sam Shamoun
In Part Two of this Men's NetWork Bible study, Sam Shamoun, an Arab-Christian, examines key texts from the Qur'an and the Bible. Among the items he sheds light on are Islamic presuppositions concerning the priority of the Qur'an, Bible texts considered corrupt by Muslims, the sonship of believers, and Islam's position on the Trinity.

Shamoun's compelling explanation of the three phases of jihad or Muslim "holy war" is of particular benefit to users of this Bible study. This term-oft heard and oft misunderstood over the last few years-is essential for the non-Muslim to understand. As delivered in the Qur'an, jihad is a three-stage process describing how Islam is to be advanced throughout the world. Whether expressed as peaceful co-existence, a defensive stance, or an offensive posture, the level of jihad depends on the prevailing social and political milieu Muslims find themselves in. The study's final lesson shows how society might be altered if non-Muslims' conduct and beliefs were subjugated to the tenets and practice of Islam. Finally, Christians are offered encouragement and talking points when encountering Muslims on faith issues and sharing the hope they have in Christ Jesus.

Satan: The Great Deceiver
