A ground
eaking comparative study that illuminates the connections between the Qur'an and the BibleWhile the He
ew Bible and the New Testament are understood to be related texts, the sacred scripture of Islam, the third A
ahamic faith, has generally been considered separately. Noted religious scholar Ga
iel Said Reynolds draws on centuries of Qur'anic and Biblical studies to offer rigorous and revelatory commentary on how these holy books are intrinsically connected.Reynolds demonstrates how Jewish and Christian characters, imagery, and literary devices feature prominently in the Qur'an, including stories of angels bowing before Adam and of Jesus speaking as an infant. This important contribution to religious studies features a full translation of the Qur'an along with excerpts from the Jewish and Christian texts. It offers a clear analysis of the debates within the communities of religious scholars concerning the relationship of these scriptures, providing a new lens through which to view the powerful links that bond these three major religions.
