Foreword

In his objective study of the texts, Maurice Bucaille clears away many preconceived ideas about the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Qur'an. He tries, in this collection of Writings, to separate what belongs to Revelation from what is the product of error or human interpretation. His study sheds new light on the Holy Scriptures. At the end of a gripping account, he places the Believer before a point of cardinal importance: the continuity of a Revelation emanating from the same God, with modes of expression that differ in the course of time. It leads us to meditate upon those factors which, in our day, should spiritually unite-rather than divide-Jews, Christians and Muslims.

As a surgeon, Maurice Bucaille has often been in a situation where he was able to examine not only people's bodies, but their souls. This is how he was struck by the existence of Muslim piety and by aspects of Islam, which remain unknown to the vast majority of non-Muslims. In his search for explanations, which are otherwise difficult to obtain, he learnt Arabic and studied the Qur'an. In it, he was surprised to find statements on natural phenomena whose meaning can only be understood through modern scientific knowledge.

He then turned to the question of the authenticity of the writing that constitute the Holy Scriptures of the monotheistic religions. Finally, in the case of the Bible, he proceeded to a confrontation between these writings and scientific data.

The results of his research into the Judeo-Christian Revelation and the Qur'an are set out in this book.

Back of the Book

The functioning of Human body from womb to death, a natural phenomenon and many other related incidents, movement of earth, sun and lunar system etc. has put the author Maurice Bucaille, a French surgeon, perplexed. To quench the thirst for the explanation, learnt Arabic and studied thoroughly the Holy Qur'an and several books comparing with modern science and monotheistic religions, i.e., Jews, Christianity and Islam. He also presents the comparative study belongs to Revelation from what is the product of errors or human interpretations in the Jews and Bible.

In the Holy Qur'an , he found the statement on natural phenomenon, who's meaning has also been more clarified by the Modern scientific observations. He tried to prove that what the Holy Qur'an has said and guided 1400 years ago on subjects like creation of Universe, different stages of child in a womb etc.
