Similarities and differences between Islam and Christianity, Debate with Jay Smith

Dr. Zakir Naik: Was Jesus Crucified or Crucificted?

About this Video: The Great Debate I (Manchester University 1997)

Many people wonder what the comparison is between Islam vs. Christianity. While there are a few similarities between Islam and Christianity, such as a belief in moral living and doing good to others, nevertheless, Muslims and Christians have vastly different views on major points of ideology and theology.

Representing the Muslim perspective was Mr. Shabir Ally, a prominent Muslim speaker and debater. He was formally trained with Dr. Jamal Badawi and is the founder of the Islamic Information and Da'wah Centre in Toronto, Canada.

Representing the Christian side was Mr. Jay Smith, a Ph.D. candidate in Islamic studies at Brunel University in London.

Mr. Smith is widely acknowledged as one of the leading authorities on Islam and the historicity of the Koran.

He has participated in many debates that have included distinguished opponents such as Benazir Bhuto, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan.

The event format includes 2 hours of presentations and rebuttals with a exchange of ideas and worldviews. The dialogue was direct and challenging, yet handled with respect, cordiality and sometimes even humour.
