What Students Say

  • "This course aims to enable Christians to better understand the roots and realities of Islam and to respond in a way that is Biblical, sensitive, informed and bold."
  • "It was just brilliant. People were saying today [last day of the course] that it has transformed their whole understanding and attitude, they just want to go out and love people that come from the Muslim community now, with full understanding of- everybody's different. They have a huge amount of insight, but that's too much to go into detail - Take the course!" -Course Tutor reflecting on student feedback.
