Foreword: Of God, religion, and the violence of sacred scripture -- Adam and his wife -- Adam's son and his brother -- Noah -- Abraham and his father -- Abraham and his sons -- Joseph -- Moses -- Jesus and his mother -- Afterword: on the Qurʼan as the word of God -- Appendix: Of satan and the afterlife in the Bible and the Qurʼan.
Who is Allah? What makes Him unique? And what does He ask of those who submit to His teachings? The God of the Qur'an revises and perfects: His purpose is to make whole what had been corrupted or lost from the practices and scriptures of the earlier Abrahamic religions. Setting passages from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and the Qur'an side by side, Miles illuminates what is unique about Allah, His teachings and His temperament, and in doing so revises that which is false, distorted, or simply absent from our conception of the heart of Islam. -- adapted from jacket
