James R. White, founder & director of Alpha & Omega Ministries , a theologically Reformed Christian apologetics ministry based in Phoenix, AZ, will address "This Saturday's Muslim-Christian Dialogue with Imam Syed Z. Sayeed: Jesus in the Qur'an & the Bible"!

Although Imam Syed Z. Sayeed, Religious Life Advisor for the Muslim Campus Ministry & Office of the University Chaplain at Columbia University in New York City (, cannot participate in today's radio interview with Dr. White due to previous commitments, we are very grateful to him for accepting our invitation to participate in this upcoming Dialogue with very little notice after Imam Shamsi Ali of the Jamaica Muslim Center had to bow out of involvement this time around due to unforeseen schedule problems. This Muslim-Christian Dialogue will be held this Saturday, November 7, 7pm, at the United Presbyterian Church of Ridgewood, Queens, NY (See details here).

He is an accomplished debater, having engaged in more than seventy-five, public debates with leading proponents of Islam, Roman Catholicism, Liberal Protestantism, Homosexual Activism, Oneness Pentecostalism, Jehovah's Witnesses, and Mormonism, in addition to having collegial, "in-house" debates with friends & brothers in Christ over issues ranging from the biblical subjects of baptism to the doctrines of Calvinism.
