Adam Francisco has a Ph.D. in Islamic-Christian relations from Oxford University and is professor of history at Concordia University in Irvine California.

His work on the history of Islam is nuanced and informed. As one online bio notes, “He has a unique ability to see and understand both the difficulties facing Christians who wish to evangelize their Muslim friends and the Muslims who are being asked to come to Christ. Many of his unique insights come from personal experiences sharing his faith with Muslims.”

To get a taste, see the first couple of videos produced by Modern Reformation below given some brief historical background. If that whets your appetite, you can view four lectures he gave at Faith Lutheran Church in Capistrano Beach, California, on (1) The Muslim Worldview; (2) Islamic Theology: Part 1; (3) Islamic Theology: Part 2; (4) Islam in America.

    James White has written an excellent book called “What Every Christian needs to kown about the Qu’ran”. I know the heavily washed reformed shun him. Just thought I’d put it out there.

      Why TGC isn’t requesting him all the time is beyond me, especially on Islam and other apologetics issues.

      1. Dr. White’s scholarship and ability to develop effective lines of argumentation is impeccable. However, his tenacity regarding Ergun Caner’s dishonesty has upset Dr. Caner’s supporters such that I suspect Dr. White is more of a liability than an asset in organizations such as TGC. Not only will his presence cause division from Dr. Caner’s supporters, but I suspect it would be disruptive enough that any contribution Dr. White would make would be largely obscured by the controversy.

        Regarding his book, I sent a copy to the field to be read and tested by our people ministering to Arab Muslims. They are back in the States only this week and I plan to get an update on how well it helped them.

  2. RP says:

    This information is very crucial to understanding the present situation of Egypt’s Christians. The relationship between Christians and Muslims have always been fractured. Perhaps more knowledge of these theologies would explain the tension between them.

    Wow, thank you Justin for this and thank you Dr. Francisco for these resources on equipping believers on Islam!
