Doug Hardt is a Pastor, teacher, missionary and author currently working in Minnesota. His most recent book, titled Who Was Muhammad? An Analysis of the Prophet of Islam in Light of the Bible and the Quran, seeks to answer that question for readers who may not be familiar with the influential figure. Islam is the fastest growing religion on the planet, yet knowledge of what makes it tick is alarmingly low in the West, including the Seventh-day Adventist church.

In this special hour-long podcast, I sit down with Doug and talk to him about his experiences as a missionary, where he spent eight years in places such as Azerbaijan, Georgia, Egypt, Bahrain and other Middle-Eastern countries, and his interactions with Muslims abroad and at home.
