Excellent, though can be considered incomplete
December 23, 2015
I streamed this on a membership program outside CBD and did not purchase, but I might. For my second time through a personal study of the Koran I had no expectation. Afterwards, I thought this was very thorough on principals and clearly explains the big differences between Islam and Christianity. This was helpful since so many are trying to draw commonality. I also was very impressed that actual Muslims were in the program and explained their knowledge and point of view of the Koran, beliefs and Islamic documents...that was very compelling to me to believe the overall information and argument that biblical Christianity is the answer to eternal life (not that I was seeking anything other than Jesus). I agree with other reviewers that the violence of Islam, their creating of chaos to bring about their Messiah, and unreasonable aspects of Sharia Law's pedophilia and violence/abuse as ordinary punishment is not at all discussed. However, it focuses on religious concept and scriptural differences, sin and Jesus Christ and speaking with compassion. This documentary is an outstanding starting place.
This video does NOT explain the differences truthfully. This gives Islam a much more peaceful appearance than is true. They do not want to offend Muslims and by doing so they have confused Christians. One simple example is when the speaker describes how the Koran was written by Muhammad and he was illiterate so it is an extraordinary thing. This is not truth. The followers of Muhammad captured a Jewish man and a Catholic man and threw them into a pit and forced them to write the Koran. I am very displeased with this purchase.
Very informative on the similarities between Christianity and Islam. Very surprising. Presents an unbiased look at both ends of the spectrum, as well as the important differences between the two. I was hoping for more practical advice out of this DVD, such as how to approach conversations with Muslim friends. What to say, what not so say, how to help them see/realize/experience Jesus' love. It was worth watching though, I would still recommend it. I learned a lot about Islam.
I have used this study in three different churches now and it is fair, balanced and unashamedly Christian. Dr George has done an excellent job at letting Islam speak for itself and then challenging the Christian to respond. He shows us where there are conversation starting-points and how the Spirit is at work, preparing the ground before us. All three classes were impressed with the information, the presentation and the prayerfulness of this excellent study - one that EVERY Christian needs to hear!
