I received some scans from John Ankerberg’s book Middle East Meltdown: Oil, Israel, and the Religion Behind the Crisis, Harvest House Publishers (February 1, 2007), in which Ankerberg quotes Caner as saying:
“One of the great Islamic apologists, Shabir Ali, would always ask in debate, ‘What would one man’s death have to do with me?'”
A couple things to note, Ergun Caner claimed in 2007 to have debated Shabir Ally and even said that he had died. (Shabir is alive and has never debated Ergun Caner.)
Now, notice in this video, Ergun is claiming to have debated Shabir as well as “Abdul Saleeb” (which means “Servant of the Cross”, for a guy who claims to know Arabic, he should have known!) The fact is, none of these debates he claims to have engaged in has ever happened. Ergun has never even met Shabir Ally.
This is the man that Arlington Baptist Seminary and now Brewton-Parker College have hired and trusted the education of their students to.
