    Book details


Numerous books and articles have been published about the crucifixion. Western studies have focused on the Christian narratives and historical sources, but most of them have completely ignored the Qur'an, which denies that Jesus was crucified. Muslim scholars have also studied the Qur'an's account but mostly in exegetical works that focused on the Qur'an's version of the story, with some comparative references to the Gospel narratives but almost no consideration of historical sources.This book takes a new approach by considering the crucifixion in the Qur'an, Christian writings, and early historical sources. It discusses the serious flaws in the Gospel accounts and the unreliability of the few non-scriptural sources. The book also challenges common modern alternative readings of the history of that event. One new contribution that this study makes to the literature of the crucifixion is its new interpretation of all related Qur'anic verses. It also contributes a coherence explanation of the development of the fictitious story of the crucifixion of Jesus.The theology of the cross that Paul developed is also examined. The book shows that the doctrine of the atonement conflicts with the Gospel teachings and is refuted in the Qur'an.Detailed, yet easy-to-read and highly enjoyable, this book is intended for both the general reader and the expert. This thought-provoking study is for anyone interested in the crucifixion in the Qur'an, New Testament, and historical sources. Those interested in comparative studies of the Qur'an and the Bible will find this book highly informative. No specialist knowledge is required for reading the book.

    Anyone that reads this and still maintains that the bible is the word of God and that the gospel (-- which should be in the plural as GospelS) is factual and true --- is living in denial - you know what they say about the bible ... it's one hundred percent accurate -- especially if its thrown at close range. Unfortunately the author's conclusion about the ultimate fate of Jesus relies upon an absurd theory that God took him "up" to "live somewhere" until he died. Apart from that it is a good book if you can live with being irritated by badly constructed sentences, wrong letters being printed in the middle of words e.g. 'Dawn' becomes 'down'. and in one particularly clumsy sentence what should read as 'consciousness' becomes 'UNconsciouness' which makes the entire sentence a nonsense. That all said it's worth reading and he does the donkey-work of comparing the glaring variations in the various gospels and blows holes in many aspects of what most people consider to be 'true'. If like me you always thought that 'christianity' is a false religion this book will confirm that as a fact. It would be better termed 'Paulinity'. I have no problem with Jesus as a prophet although I doubt that his various speeches and parables were ever uttered by him, and if they were I doubt that he was the original composer -- so I've also bought Fatoohi's book on the historical Jesus where I anticipate finding his agreement that among many aspects of Christianity the various statements attributed to Jesus constitute yet another quicksand of fabrications. Was this book published in a last-minute rush due to some sort of deadline imposition?? I suspect it was. Shame.
