Harun Yahya and Joel Richardson Interview


Harun Yahya is one of the most popular Muslim apologists and lecturers today. I really appreciate the work that he has done in regard to Creationism and his interfaith work with Christian leaders and Rabbis.
In this interview by Joel Richardson, he discusses some of the issues regarding the end of days and the coming of the Mahdi. Joel also asks him several questions regarding the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, as well as issues related to his second coming.
They are both very kind and gracious instead of attacking one another personally. I would love to see more interviews like this one. The two men have obviously different faith and very different views on eschatology, yet they are both open to learning from one another.

You know that's not his real name by the way. It's a pen name, a group of ppl write for him.

@Sarah, That explains why he has written 300 books! I was trying to figure out how that was even possible last night.

A group of people??? Wow... I think he was more gracious than his interviewer. I try never to get into that us and them thing. Of course, that's not entirely possible when you are explaining why your personal observance of certain customs differs a bit from the standard Muslim-type observance. Then you kind of have to say, 'Well, I'm a Christian, and the rules for Christians are a bit different...'

@caraboska, Overall it was much better than a lot of the so-called debates that you see all over the internet. I don't think that much is gained in those circumstances. I've realized that I'm fine not fitting in with mainstream Christians, as have you :)
