Discovering the Qur'an

Tealight Books

Discovering the Qur'an offers a concise introduction to the holy book revered by Muslims as a perfect revelation from God.


While many of us in the West describe our societies as 'multicultural', if we're honest with ourselves, we feel uncomfortable about engaging with the beliefs of people who adhere to a religion other than our own. However, exploring the religious beliefs of others is an effective way of facilitating both personal spiritual growth and societal understanding.


Philosopher Steven Colborne, a first-class BA (Hons) graduate and author of more than a dozen books in the philosophical theology genre, decided it would be conscientious to read the Qur'an in its entirety, despite his Christian background. What he discovered was a life-changing book more relatable than he had ever imagined.


Discovering the Qur'an grew out of the notes Colborne made when reading the Qur'an from cover to cover for the first time. The author found various areas of resonance and dissonance with the orthodox Christian beliefs he has spent much of his adult life engaging with, and in the book Colborne discusses subjects including God's sovereignty, the oneness of God, the person of Jesus Christ, divine judgement, and others, with reference to both the Bible and the Qur'an.


Though only a short read, Discovering the Qur'an serves as an excellent introduction both to the Muslim sacred Scriptures and to the many areas of interfaith dialogue that might be furthered between Christianity and Islam.
