How This Course Benefits Students:
Learners need to develop a framework, culturally-appropriate approaches and effective techniques that help them analyze Islam and its belief system.

Students need to be able to provide evidence-based answers to the questions people might have about the gospel.
Why This Course Is Important:
Islam has over a billion followers spread over Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas.
