    Jack Miles says he wrote this book--following the example of C.S. Lewis--because it was a book that he would want to read that no one had written yet. He (along with John Shelby Spong and Bart Ehrman) definitely writes books I would like to have written in another life where I was a wr...

    Miles, a committed Christian, is not interested in finding the God of the Qur'an better or worse, more or less truthful, than the God of the Bible; rather, as he writes in the foreword, he comes at them as a literary critic would and suspends his belief. As characters, or figures, Yahw...

    Who is God? That seems to be the question Jack Miles attempts to discover, not by presenting his own views but by examining the sacred scriptures of each of the three great monotheistic religions. Presumably, he is the same God (each religion proclaims there is but one God) but they do...

    I enjoyed this book, in particular the examinations of the differences involving the stories of Satan & Noah. However, I found that it approaches its main idea of comparing the God of the Qur'an to the God of the Old & New Testaments very indirectly. The last chapter I found to...

    A good read for anyone interested in comparative religions, and Miles seems to do a nice job considering the pros and cons of the major religions in a fair manner, with a focus on how God is depicted in the Qur'an. He makes some interesting comparisons, for example during the tale of A...

    I thought I was going to find this book interesting and I did. However, the best parts were the ?forword? and ?afterword? by the author, Jack Miles. The actual content of the book, I.e. God in the Quran, was rather difficult to follow and simply illogical at times. In addition,...

    A in-depth comparison between the Qur'an, Torah, and bible. It was okay to read. I am not a scholar though and needed quicker side by side comparisons and summaries. However I liked the comparison on page 200 of the golden rings and find it a way to move forward with. I also liked the ...
