4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, 28 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I knew a little of Islam. Now I feel like I know much more and more importantly, I feel as though I have learned it from a trustworthy source.

Nabeel's story is well told in a narrative style which may not appeal to more technical readers or those looking for mere theological idea however it keeps the book readable, especially for those unfamiliar with Islamic terms and teachings.

This deceptively simple style allows the real weight of the book to be felt as we journey with Nabeel to faith in God through the person of Christ. Christ as Saviour rather than prophet, Christ as God as well as man.

My personal recommendation would also be to follow up this read by watching some YouTube videos featuring Nabeel. They will add even more to the subject and will compliment all that is read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A deceptively comprehensive study - an easy read, 8 May 2000
This review is from: The Tomb of Christ (Hardcover)
Now History and Archeology & Thelogy usually result in hard to understand books which offer little appeal to any casual reader who may have a slight interest in any given subject, but Martin Biddles book seems to break the rules.
Although it offeres a very high level of detail it is written in an easily accessible format which is good news for anybody who does not possess a degree in History, Archeology or Theology.
The book seems to offer strong evidence for the Tombs location and after reading the book you do actually feel that at long last, beurocracy has (in this case) given way, resulting in a decent amount of evidence being 'dug up' and presented. All too often at the end of 'these books' the plot grows cold and the conclusion offers the classical 'If only' Syndrome.
Unlike the words of most dying Pirates which seemed to murmour away after "The Treasure is buried under the...... " Martin Biddle presents a pretty conclusive and satisfying case. I actually felt that I had learned something at the end rather that just having tantalising 'What if's?'
Read this book if you want some credible answers.
