Islam Course Upcoming in Fall Semester


The global march of Islam continues unabated, even as the Christian church is just beginning to awaken to the need to witness the Gospel of Christ to its adherents. At the same time, new threats of Muslim/Christian syncretism are growing.

Greenville Seminary's unique course on Islam is designed to prepare Christians for an appropriate biblical response as part of an effective apologetic (defense) of our faith and an evangelistic outreach.

The course will be taught again this fall at GPTS on an intensive schedule by Dr. Anees Zaka of Church Without Walls, Philadelphia. Classes will be held as follows:
  • Monday, Sept. 10 – 6-10 p.m.
  • Tuesday - Friday, Sept. 11-14 – 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.; 1:30 -5:00 p.m.
The course is available for enrollment by the public on an audit basis. Contact Registrar Kathleen Curto (registrar@gpts.edu) for details.
