Summer Institute of Islamic Studies: Mystical Islam (2024)


Welcome to MS/MSS-939 SP ST and MCC-639  MYSTICAL ISLAM, courses taught by  Dr. Stephen Krstulovich. 

"This course will help prepare students to address the challenges posed by mystical Islam and associated folk Islamic practices. It will look at the development of mystical Islam and the power given to Christians to confront the spiritual warfare that it entails. Biblical and historical responses will be examined with a view to exposing the deception behind these Islamic systems and liberating both Muslim and non-Muslim practitioners to follow Christ as their true hope."
