Makkīkhā ibn Sulaymān al-Qankānī

This work appears to have been a justification of Christian teachings in the light of Muslim criticisms, and is likely to have contained defenses of the Trinity, the unity of the divine and human natures in Christ, and Christian scripture, among other recognized matters of disagreement.
