An Islam Primer–Mark Ryan
Christian-Muslim dialogue resource-This a five part podcast series of largely descriptive lectures on Islam which grew out of friendships with Muslims living in North America and a desire to help Christian men and women understand what many Muslims sharing our university classrooms, working alongside us in our places of employment, and living in our neighborhoods, believe and practice.
As a rich, diverse and therefore complex faith, such a short series of lectures cannot do full justice to Islam. This is readily acknowledged. Instead, these lectures have a modest aim: to encourage awareness of the basic tenets of Islam and to support improved dialog between Christians and their Muslim friends, colleagues and neighbors.

Introduction to Islam–By Professor Timothy Tennent
This course is an introduction to the religion of Islam. There are 24 separate lectures totaling approximately 16 hours. These lectures were given at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. There is also a summary course for this class.
The purpose of this course is to provide an introductory study of the structure, beliefs and practices of Islam. Special emphasis will be placed on a study of the theology of the Koran. The student will read and study the entire Koran along with important selections from the Hadith, Shari`a material and Sufi writings. The actual historical manifestations of contemporary Islam will be explored with a special emphasis on Islam in the African context. Throughout the course there will be a concern to demonstrate how Islamic thought is different from Christian thought and how the gospel can be most effectively communicated to members of the Islamic faith, the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world today.

Welcome to the Christian-Muslim debate website—www.debate.org.uk
This is one of the best resource sites for equipping the believer for Christian-Muslim dialogue. The site includes resource material in the areas of historical, theological, political, social, cultural and apologetic, all of which is well worth the read and study. I highly recommend this site.
