Apologist Interview: David Wood

Today’s interview is with David Wood, a former atheist who converted to Christianity after examining the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. As well as being a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy, David directs Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries,  defending the Christian Faith against atheistic and Islamic objections. He talks about the Dearborn Arab Festival, the growth of Islam, the crucifixion of Jesus (Christian view compared to Islam), the usage of the word “Allah,” Muslim arguments for the Qu’ran, the question of Jihad, assessing arguments in favor of Islam, inaccuracies in the Qu’ran, recommended resources on Islam, and more.

Find Acts 17 Apologetics here, as well as great resources at Answering-Islam.

    Great interview. But it seems that some of the original interview is cut off. For example where David is beginning to give a sample of a Quranic verse (when discussing the argument from literary excellence) most of the verse is missing. There are a few other places where something similar occurs.

    thanks for the fine and the very helpful interview. A-17 so often gives me valuable information on not just refuting Islam, but how to effectively reach out to Muslims. Wood, Rogers, Sam, and others from A-17 bring together solid scholarship that is born from truth tethered to men who minister in the trenches. good work Brian.

    Time codes on those cut-offs would be helpful, if you have them. Thanks.
