Responses to the Writings, Debates, and Teachings of

Dr. Jamal Badawi

Dr. Jamal Badawi has been one of the most popular Muslim speaker in the West for the last three decades (though he is now eclipsed by Shabir Ally ). Dr. Badawi was a professor of economics/management. Though we are not aware that he has taken any formal training in Islamic or Christian theological studies, his books on Islam and Muslim-Christian issues are quite popular. He is one of the most effective Dawah speakers and has hundreds of lectures and debates on tapes, as well as books and leaflets on various topics.

As time permits, we will provide Christian responses to some of the more important papers and arguments that he regularly uses in his debates. This is a small beginning:
