Course Content

This free 6 week online course will discuss and assess the Islamic and Christian concept of God, from the perspective of maximal perfection, soteriology and harmatiology. This course will also respond to three of Dr. William Lane Craig’s main arguments against Islamic theism. For over a decade, Dr. Craig has formulated several arguments against Muslim belief. Craigs main arguments question Allah’s maximal perfection. He maintains that Allah cannot be maximally holy and omnipotent because the Islamic doctrine of salvation compromises God’s holiness and is therefore insufficient in securing Divine favour and redemption. Craig also postulates that Allah is not maximally loving, therefore the God of Islam is “morally inadequate”. Although Craig does not specifically refer to God’s maximal knowledge, he argues that Allah got the Christian conception of the trinity wrong, therefore and by logical implication, Allah is not maximally knowing.
