A Study of Conflicting Beliefs

This study is taken from a Bible Study of the following dates. The study focuses on a comparison of two world religions. This is meant as a serious study of the facts of one's faith. What do the facts show us concerning our faith that strengthen or bring into question what we believe. This study is not an attempt to denigrate any religion but to cause us to take an honest look at why we believe what we believe and why.

The sessions were laid out in a question format, followed by open discussion and a presentation of facts. The major resources for the lessons are 1) "Unveiling Islam," by Ergun Mehmet Caner and Emir Fethi Caner; 2) the web site www.answering-islam.org .
