    Jeff, One of the best books I 've ever read.

    This book is different from all other books I have read in the subject of the Holy books and their position with respect to science and scientific facts. This book is very objective, easy to understand and open the reader¿s eye to facts unknown to most people by comparing the Biblical, Quranic and Old Testament¿s views of many scientific facts. Books of this type should be in every library.

    a way off finding the truth

    first a would say that this is a book that every householder needs in their collection any one who posseses true knowledge and wisdom would be able to find god true this book with an open mind and would take the time and think refleckt and would be guided right is a great book and if you do future studies on it and pounder for knowledge it will make more sense. a must hope you enjoy it and hope stay away from some books out there that would give you wrong imformation about things i red a book and waaw its funny that this person was mis Quating the other person only to make his point and to disprose a nother person so plz becare full what you feed the mind and soul take care and for every one that read this book i hope it makes a diffrence in your life as it did to mine cuz mine didnt stop here but did alot more researh on my own thank you

    If You really Seek Knowledge, Read this Treasure

    I was skeptical at first. I read many reviewers' critique of this book and hesitated a bit. Then I bought it. I was really amazed with the easy analytical work comparing the compatibility of the Bible, the Torah, the Gospels and the Quran with established modern laws of science. Within 10 days, I read it twice and bought three more copies to my friends as gifts. When you read this book, read it with open mind, with no prejudice against any religion. It will give you a strong sense of understanding the glory of God... Mark
