The New Testament: Early Christianity and the Assault of Hellenism


SKU: 4460 Category:


In the New Testament: An Islamic Perspective (Volume 2 of a Comparison of the Quranic Stories of Surabadi With the Bible), the author compares the New Testament stories of Mary, Jesus, and others 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 examined in detail from a Muslim point of view, and the differences between the traditional Christian and the Islamic forms explored, as well as the reasons for such differences. The book becomes a journey through the literature and history of the Classical world in search of Jesus and his principal interpreter, Paul. Going beyond the familiar Biblical stories, it ventures into unfamiliar pagan and non-canonical Christian writings, often with surprising results.
