Mark Ryan - An Islam Primer - 2. The Qur'an
Mark Ryan works for L'Abri Fellowship International. These largely descriptive lectures on Islam grew out of his friendships with Muslims living in North America and a desire to help Christian men and women understand what many Muslims sharing our university classrooms, working alongside us in our places of employment, and living in our neighborhoods, believe and practice.
As a rich, diverse and therefore complex faith, such a short series of lectures cannot do full justice to Islam. This is readily acknowledged. Instead, these lectures have a modest aim: to encourage awareness of the basic tenets of Islam and to support improved dialog between Christians and their Muslim friends, colleagues and neighbors.
This second talk considers the Qur'an, the foundation of Islamic belief and action.
The third talk in this series considers the Pillars of Islam.
