David Wood: Islam's Abused Little Girls: The Nujood Ali Story

MP3 Available Here

David Wood, Evangelical Christian apologist to the Muslims, will address the theme: "Islam's Abused Little Girls: The Nujood Ali Story".

At the age of nine, Nujood Ali was forced by her Muslim parents in Yemen to marry a man in his thirties. On April 2, 2008, after repeated beatings by her husband's parents and frequently being raped by her husband for the two months subsequent to the arranged marriage, she escaped from her "prison home" and sought after a divorce, which was thankfully granted to her by a Yemeni judge, even though there is no minimum age requirement for marriage in Yemen. You can read more about this brave young girl's story in the book she wrote with Delphine Minoui: "I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced".

Tonight's guest, David Wood, has become fondly known as "Iron Sharpens Iron's Resident Apologist to the Muslims". David is a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at Fordham University . A former atheist, David converted to Christianity based on the historical evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus. David now debates both atheists and Muslims and is co-director of Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries, an organization he founded with Nabeel Qureshi, a convert from Islam to Christianity. David also contributes to, which he considers to be the very best resource available anywhere, bar none, to discover and learn the true history and teachings of Islam. He personally operates the blog site

David's ministry comes very highly recommended by frequent "Iron Sharpens Iron" guest, renowned Christian apologist and biblical scholar Dr. James R. White of Alpha & Omega Ministries.
