The Articles which are listed are very interesting ,They talk about Linguistic , Variants and Manuscripts matters. However , the most interesting one in my opinion , was by the name of ( An Ancient Syriac Translation of the Kur'an Exhibiting new Verses and Variants) , written by Alphonso Mingana where a new verses of the Quran can be read.
The book brings many different readings which are different than the Standard readings hold by muslims today , and in many cases those readings give even a better meaning of the text. Some of those readings can challenge many orthodox Sunni doctrines. Such as the quran is kept on a Heavenly Tablet.
in conclusion , I recommend this book , to anyone who likes to know more about the different versions of the Quran .
And their excuse that a goat ate parts of the koran makes that so called "religion" even more laughable.
The koran, the word of god? I don't think so.
Books like this and the internet will make it easy for muslims to realize what a big scam islam is. I thus strongly doubt islam has a future.
I now suddenly understand why I know more ex-muslims than muslims. And somehow I feel I will know even more ex-muslims in future...
