The Engaging with Islam Training Course
The first part of the training is to watch the video Christianity & Islam – Where to Start. This video is an introduction to Islam for all Christians, and it explains the method and approach of Engaging with Islam. You must watch this video. If after watching this you want more training then do the Engaging with Islam training course below. The course is designed to give Christians a practical introduction to the history and teaching of Islam and a foundation for evangelism and answering common questions. The course can be done individually, in a small group or as part of leadership training. Anyone can lead this course as leaders notes and answers are provided. The course is a mix of preparation material, group discussion and a video presentation. All of the course material is located on this page. Watch the promotional video below now.

The Next Step
If you have just completed the Engaging with Islam course you may be thinking about what to do next. Here are some suggestions:
1. Keep learning the Bible and growing as a Christian. We need to know about Islam but to know Jesus. There is no use being an expert in Islam and an infant in your own faith. There is plenty of Bible teaching on this site.
2. Talk to Muslims. Don’t be afraid. Trust God and talk to them as you would anyone else. Most Muslims are quite reasonable and keen to discuss things. Experience is a great teacher.
3. Run this course with a group of people. When you teach something you learn more about it, so run this course and you will be even more familiar with the issues.
5. Get familiar with the Answering Islam website.
6. There are many ministries happening for Muslims. Find out where these are in your area and get involved.
7. Other training courses.
- Liberty to the Captives A training course by Mark Durie. I recommend this course as the next step after the Engaging with Islam course.
- I2 Ministries
- Qur’an Course. This course was originally written by Jeremy Hinds and has been adapted for correspondence purposes by Word of Life. It is helpful for those wishing to know more about Islam and the Qur’an, especially those entering the ministry or going on mission.
