3.0 out of 5 stars A well-argued book, but..., 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Why I am Not a Muslim (Hardcover)
Ibn Warraq has clearly put a lot of effort into this closely-argued book. Having bought the book, I turned to the section on the Qur'an, which is part of the scripture of my faith, and which I know well. I found many of his points interesting, but as with other books which consider the Qur'an, quality control is not everything it could be. He spotted 5:38 but not 5:39, 5:33 but neither 5:32 nor 5:34, and 9:5 (The verse of the sword) but not 9:6 (The verse of the ploughshare).

This book is easy to read, and is ideal for those people looking for new and provocative ideas, particularly those people who already know something of the subject. It would be a poor choice for anyone, pro-Islam or anti-Islam, who was looking to have their preconceptions supported. It is light years away from the work of Robert Spencer and other such polemicists.
