Here is a link to the debate held at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary on Thursday, March 17, 2011. The topic centered on the trustworthiness and implications of world views based upon the Christian Scriptures, the Bible, or the Muslim Scriptures, the Qur’an. Speaking on behalf of the Christian Bible is Jay Smith, an American Christian apologist who currently lives, works, and speaks in London, England. Speaking on behalf of the Qur’an of Islam is Khalil Meek, an American convert to Islam currently living in Dallas, Texas.
The entire debate is two hours long…an investment worthy of your time. Jay does an excellent job of presenting strong biblical conviction while also calling his compatriot to accept the Gospel truth. For his part, Khalil is a very personable individual who is genuinely convinced of the veracity of Islam and its benefit for our nation and the world. That being said, his assertions and responses do not hold up in the light of absolute truth.
