Answering Missionaries

Update

Assalam Alaikum,

Upon the advice and suggestions of some friends, who felt that the name of the present blog was a bit too combative, I decided to start a new blog on comparative religion, entitled:

Open Discourse On Abrahamic Religions http://opendiscourse.wordpress.com/

Most of the essays on this blog have been transferred over to the new one (with a few adaptations and refinements) and a few irrelevant pieces have been left out.

The present blog (Answering-Missionaries) will remain inactive since material will be added to the new site (http://opendiscourse.wordpress.com/) from now on, although I will not remove it permanently.

Future plans

Assalam Alaikum readers

I know the site has not been updated in a while. Besides being a little lazy, job hunting, and finishing up some assignments, I have been exceedingly busy getting some work done at home (new kitchen tiles, flooring, painting etc). However, I plan to update the site in a few weeks Inshallah.

I thought why not give you a glimpse of my future plans:

My plan is to finish a large paper on the compilation and transmission of the Quran. Although I have already started working on this subject, it would take a little longer to acquire all the necessary references. As work continues on this paper, I will try to upload on this blog a few excerpts on different aspects of the Quran from a particularly interesting book I recently came across, as well as certain excerpts from a classical book. Third, I plan to put up a series of articles on the historical Jesus subject in which I will attempt to briefly present the conclusions derived by a number of scholars whose books I have been reading for some time. Fourth, I wish to put up some book reviews as well – both Islamic and non-Islamic books. Fifth, offer some responses to the common missionary polemics against Islam. Finally, I will attempt to write a little on New Testament authorship, canon and textual transmission as well, where I will attempt to tackle certain common apologetic arguments.

Well, as you can see I have a lot on my mind. Inshallah, with God’s help I am sure I will manage it. Keep an eye on this blog!

Regards and best wishes.
