This is an apologetic. It takes scientific discoveries and shoehorns them into Quranic verses by redefining them and using very creative interpretations of what they might mean. Then it attempts to show that it is easier to do this with the Quran than the Bible.I am Muslim, and I prefer the Quran to the Bible for various reasons (yes, I have read them both in their entirety). However, I have always been annoyed by the apologetics. It's post facto reasoning - we know that some scientific fact is real, and we know the Quran is unerring and should mention it someplace, so the only task left is to find a likely verse and explain it extremely creatively.This is not a new tactic in faith discussions, and it is only when it comes to science that I find that it really irks me. (For example, feminist reinterpretations of the Quran I find highly convincing. See Mernissi and Wadud for examples.) I don't think faith should try to use science to bolster itself. Somehow this seems like dishonesty and cheating. I especially think it's funny when one faith says it's more scientific than another (as is true with this book, which is an Islamic self-justification comparing itself to Christianity, which, surprise, comes up short). Faith and science are at odds. One requires proof, the other requires you to accept something without proof.Anyhow, for the above reason, I disliked this book, which was given to me as a present while I lived in Egypt.

This book asks`What is it in the religion that makes 1.2 billion people see it as meaningful?¿¿ For that reason alone, reading this book, or others like it is a good thing.

this book researched by french doctor bucaille uncovers a good comparison between the bible and quran in the light of modern scientific knowledge. Christians need to read it!

This book has surprised me. I could not believe that all this scientific information was contained in these books thousands of years before science discovered it. This book shows that religion and science can be in perfect harmony. You will be surprised.

Doctor Maurice Bucaille's quest for knowldedge led him to discover the true words of God. He proved to himself and to many readers that the Holy Qur'an could in noway have been written by a human being living in the seventh century AD, namely Prophet Mohamed. He outlined the revelations in the Qur'an that refer to scientific phenomeno in the human body, in nature, in astronomy and in other fields. He could not find any conflict between Qur'an and modern science, but found the same in the Bible! A very interesting reading for any unbiased reader who is a truth seeker
