I find that Islam is the weakest - except for the shia/sunni split, i have yet to find much on it.
For Christianity only, look at the various religious schools on ItunesU. One that was interesting is ''intro to the new testament'' by Yale - it is extremely neutral(unlike 99% of religious history found on Itunes at least, which are done by various christian schools).
