The Qur'an Dilemma (English Volume 1) Analyzed by: former Muslims

Monday, February 20, 2012
This is the most beautiful book I’ve read in years.  The quality of the pages: paper, color, print, and decorative art draw the reader into the text.  The organization of the book helps the reader to understand this difficult analysis writing with color coding and a pronunciation guide.  The Preface gives a Guide to Reading the Book which leads you to a “key” before reading Part I.  As with any ancient text written in a language other than your own, you rely on translations.  The authors, in the “key”, discuss the reliability of non-Arabic Qur'ans.  This very thorough analysis refers to 3 different translations and discusses whether, in the author’s opinions, the translation truly relates the intent of the original. 

While this book could probably be an excellent analytical source for those who would seriously study world religions, many of us are probably reading The Qur'an Dilemma just to gain an understanding of a religion other than our own.  This text is almost too in-depth for a casually interested reader; however, the analysis is so organized and well-planned that all readers will find they gain some knowledge and understanding after reading it.

Young and mature adults will enjoy the text and may gain new insight into Islam’s Holiest Book.  The text could probably motivate readers to search for more information about Islam or other world religions.
