In his latest work, "ISLAM & THE QURAN: Examining the Quran & Islamic Teachings," renowned scholar Edward D. Andrews delves into the intricacies of one of the world's most influential religions. This comprehensive study is an exploration of Islam, the Quran, and their impact on our world.
Starting with the history of Islam, Andrews expertly traces the path from Muhammad's calling to the diverse, global community that follows this faith today. By investigating the role of the Quran, along with the hadiths and Islamic law, Andrews seeks to understand Islam's principles and the interpretations that have shaped its practices over time.
The book further examines the Islamic teachings, the concept of abrogation, and the much-debated topic of Jihad. It critiques the teachings that contradict biblical texts and navigates through controversial areas with a scholarly precision that respects the sensitivity of the subject matter.
In an analysis of the Quran, Andrews investigates its authenticity and supposed 'miracle.' Is it truly a divine revelation, or does it stem from human conception? He contrasts Quranic interpretation of Jesus and other biblical figures with those in the Bible, unravelling historical and archaeological validation of the scriptures along the way.
From evaluating the Quran's internal harmony to understanding the meaning of Jihad, the book digs deep into the heart of Islam. It touches upon the various Muslim sects, their religious practices, and provides a comprehensive look at the punishment for apostasy in Islam.
In addressing frequent Muslim criticisms against the New Testament, Andrews not only defends biblical accuracy but also delves into a detailed analysis of Bible difficulties, offering practical procedures for resolving them.
Closing with an insightful examination of Islamic eschatology and the Nation of Islam and its unique beliefs, the book provides a glossary of technical terms and a bibliography for further study.
