Muslim-Christian Dialogue
July 31, 2008

From June 27-30 I attended the General Conference of our church family, the Brethren in Christ, held in Toronto. One of the features of the Conference was a dialogue (or debate, if you prefer) between Jay Smith (Brethren in Christ apologist) and Shabir Ally (one of Islam’s foremost speakers, writers and debaters). The Conference leaders asked me to moderate the dialogue, which was a delight, giving me a close-up view as to how these two men, who are personal friends, reason, reply, poke fun at each other, and present their arguments with passion.

You may access the dialogue by going to the Brethren in Christ web page,, clicking on GC 2008 VIDEOS, and then clicking on Conference Multimedia.

How would you like to enter a debate with a trained apologist from some other world religion?
