Two Recent Interviews on Islam

islam

As readers may have surmised, I was in the United States for a month on an apologetics tour, visiting North and South Carolina, California, and Texas. I returned to the U.K. on Saturday. During this time in the U.S., I was involved in four radio or TV discussions (two of which I have already written about). Two of these interviews were for an internet radio show called Theology Matters with the Pellews. It is an excellent show, which I recommend highly, and the hosts (Devin & Melissa Pellew) have a great lineup of guests. I had been on this show once previously to discuss popular objections to the Christian faith. This time, the topic of our conversation was Islam. The first show covered a lot of ground but not in as much depth as I would have liked, and so I suggested to Devin that we do a second follow-up show to discuss things at a little greater depth. He kindly agreed. You can listen to these shows at your leisure by following the links below — enjoy!

    Before I listen can you answer a quick question – is a Muslim included in the discussion or is it just several Christians discussion Muslim objections with no genuine Muslims there to portray the arguments accurately?

      I haven’t seen these, so I can’t answer your question.

      But do I understand from the assumptions in your question that you believe several atheists cannot intelligently discuss Christianity without a genuine Christian in the room to “portray the arguments accurately”?

        A good debater wants the best possible arguments against their position. If I was discussing problems with a particular religion I’d want to make sure I was hearing the best possible defence against those problems.

        If I was getting in a guest specifically to discuss Islam, and I wanted the best possible arguments against ‘problems with Islam’, then I’d get a Muslim. Similarly I’d get a Christian if I wanted to get the best arguments defending Christianity.

        I’ve heard two Muslims discussing ‘problems with Christianity’, and any Christian would have had little problem answering the so called problems. I’d suspect it would be a similar situation when a group of Christians discuss Islam with no Muslims there to address their points.

    Should the theists that post here take that as a compliment? 😉
