Description from the publisher:

The Back Cover of Volume 1 :

In Volume 1 of the Old Testament : An Islamic Perspective (Volume 1 of A Comparison of the Quranic Stories of Surabadi With the Bible), the author compares the Old Testament stories from the Creation to the end of the Israelite kingdoms with the brief notices about them in the Quran and the fuller stories in a representative medieval Quranic Commentary, that of the Sunni Muslim, Surabadi. The stories are explained in detail from a Muslim point of view, and the differences between the traditional Judaic and Islamic versions explored, as well as the reasons for such differences.

The book becomes a journey through the literature and history of the ancient world in search of the context and significance of the stories in the Bible and Islam. Going beyond the familiar Biblical and Islamic stories, it ventures in to unfamiliar pagan and non-canonical writings, often with surprising results. The analysis of the stories themselves is preceded by an extensive Introduction examining the credentials of the basic Islamic and Biblical documents of the study, including a detailed examination of modern theories about the textual history and development of the Old Testament, and the effects of the higher criticism, of particular importance for the reader interested in comparative religion. The many topics discussed in Volume 1 include: oral literature, Canaan to Palestine, the Old Testament cannon, extra-Biblical writings, the stories of the Creation, Eden, Noah, Abraham and the Patriarchs, and Joseph all of whom figure prominently in Islam as well as in Judaism and Christianity. The Old Testament: An Islamic Perspective is a valuable resource for furthering interfaith dialogue and understanding. A glossary and extensive Bibliographies are included.
