I have access to the Encyclopaedia of the Qurʾān which is the standard academic reference work on the Qur’an in the English language. It is behind a paywall. I am in the process of downloading articles as PDFs to my computer.
I am researching what top Western academics who are specialists in field say about the Qur’an’s view of the previous revelations given to the Jews and Christians. Does the Qur’an allege corruption, forgery, revision and alteration by the Jews and Christians of the revelations vouchsafed to them by God?
Christian apologists are unanimous in their claim that the Qur’an endorses the Bible we have today. But what do academic specialists (who are not Muslim) say about the matter?
What I have discovered will surprise and shock some people. I will post excerpts from the Encyclopaedia of the Qurʾān shortly, God-willing.
I hope debaters and polemicists will take account of this serious scholarly work on the subject in future.
