NEW MAPI Course: The Bible vs the Qur’an! Jan 31-Mar 21
Starting on Monday the 31st of January, 2022 (beginning at 8:00p.m. – ET) Dr Daniel Janosik and Dr Jay Smith will be teaching a brand new course entitled: ‘Responding to Islamic Bibliology (& the Qur’an)’ (IS509) where they will be introducing how to compare and contrast the Bible against the Qur’an, using the same critical criteria for both.
This course is one of the 10 foundational courses for the MAPI program (Master’s of Arts in
Apologetics and Polemics to Islam).
To register just e-mail before January 31: firstname.lastname@example.org
Drs Janosik and Smith will be teaching this course ‘live’, via Zoom Webinar, every Monday evening, from 8:00 – 10:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), from January 31 – March 21, so you can watch the lectures from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world.
But you need to be a Christian to take this course, due to the fact that it is being taught at the ‘Veritas International University’ (VIU) which is a Christian seminary, and, therefore, can only permit Christian students to participate.
Every lecture will be recorded so that those who can’t be at the ‘live lectures’ (via the Zoom Webinar), can still watch them wherever they are in the world, and at any time they choose.
We are offering 3 categories of students for this course:
1) Full-TIme Master’s or Doctoral Degree Student: The first category are those students who want to take this course for a Masters or a Doctorate academic credit. This is a 3-credit course, so the fee for each credit is $320, which makes the cost for the whole course around $960 – $1,000 (depending on if you are a returning or a new student). For these full-time students, the full course itself continues for 15 weeks, stretching from January 31 – June 17 (though only 8 weeks of lecture). This will give you ample time to read and then write logs of the books required for the course, participate in the discussions, write your papers, and sit for the final exam.
2) Audit Student: The second category are those who want to simply audit the course. The fee for this 8 week course is $280. An Audit student will have access to the Populi site where the discussions and assignments are found, like the Full-time students, and will have access to the lectures and will be sent the PowerPoints to download.
3) Personal Enrichment Student: The third category are those who simply want to take this course for their ‘Personal Enrichment’. Their fee for the 8 week course is $185. Unlike the Full-time students or the Audit students, they will not have access to the Populi Site, but will still have live access to all of the lectures and will be sent the PowerPoints to download.
To underline the distinctions, while all of the students in all 3 categories will have access to all of the lectures and to all of the PowerPoints for the entire course, the full-time and audit students will also have admission to the Populi site to participate in the ongoing weekly discussions, and will have access to the reading lists and assignments, though the full-time students will only be required to
If you are interested in any of these 3 levels, simply e-mail the
