This Alumni Academy will equip and empower attendees to share the gospel with their Muslim neighbors, co-workers, and friends. Ayman Ibrahim and John Klaassen will unpack Islam in theoretical and practical ways based on their research and years of experience in Islamic countries. They will help students understand the history, culture and worldview of Islam, as well as develop an exegetical analysis of what the Qu’ran says in relationship to God, the Bible, and Jesus. Church leaders will be provided with practical insight and a Christian understanding of Islam so they can return to their churches better equipped to train their members to reach the Islamic world with the gospel.
“Islam was not included within the curriculum of Southern Seminary in 1859. Now, more than a century and a half after the seminary’s founding, it is impossible to imagine how a minister of the gospel can be trained and prepared for faithful service without a knowledge of Islam and the challenge it represents.”
