Current Reading : The Bible, The Quran & Science

The Bible, The Qur'an, and Science: The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge

In his objective study of the texts, Maurice Bucaille clears away many preconceived ideas about the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Quran. He tries, in his collection of writings, to saparate what belongs to Revelation from what is the product of error or human interpretation.

His study sheds new lights on the Holy Scriptures. At the end of a gripping account, he places the Believer before a point of cardinal importance: the continuity of a Revelation emanating from the same god, with modes of expression that differ in the course of time. It leads ud to meditate upon those factors which, in our day, should spiritually unite - rather that devide - Jews, Christians and Muslims.

As a surgeon, Maurice Bucaille has often been in situation where he was able to examine not only people's bodies, but also their soulds. This is how he was struck by the existance of Muslim piety and by apects of Islam which remain unknown to the vast menority of non-Muslims.
