Good Catholic apologetics sources re: Islam?


#1

I was talking to a Muslim the other day and he gave me a load of materials on Islam and Christianity. He seemed like someone who was genuinely searching, but his materials were extremely biased.

I’d like to talk to him about the books and CDs he gave me to look at, and think I can get some good mileage out of the fact that the Muslim preachers on the CD assume that the Bible is literal in the way that the Quran is (which might work against US evangelicals, but not the Catholic Church!)

All the same, I don’t feel like I know enough about Islam to know where to begin. Can anybody suggest a crash course in how to talk about Catholicism in a way Muslims will understand?
