As a result, however, this really means that Dr. Campbell, well meaning as he is, also can appear to be attacking Islam. My reading of the book does not say so, but i can see where Muslims can think this.
The problem is actually highlighted in Dr. Campbell's book - both sides have a different perspective, so their approach comes with certain base assumptions. My many dealings with Muslims have shown that they simnply will not allow the same amount of textual criticism that they feel they can heap upon the Bible. Moreover, Muslim critics use highly outdated, enlightenment approaches to the Bible - methods that few reputable biblical scholars see as valid.
This book, unfortunately uses the same techniques to sling mud right back as Muslims. It is good forChristians to learn some things about the Qu'ran, but its method is simply no better than Bucaille's, even though I may agree with Dr. Campbell's conclusions.
This is an excellent rejoinder and refutation of Bucaille's works -especially those propoganda items which were designed for the propogating of islamic missionary peddlings. Dr.Campbell clearly and deftly exposes the serious defects in Bucaille's materials which gravely and effectively sounds the death-knell for all of his stuff.
By examining all of the wild claims wishfully made up in Bucaille's stuff with a fine tooth-comb, and under the light of objective & scientific research, Dr.Campbell establishes for us decisively those facts which make all the muslim theories and claims break down,fall apart and lose their so-called "authenticity" once and for all.
These are facts elucidated from historical, scientific, linguistic, socio-cultural and manuscript evidence from years of research and comparative study.
Kudos to Dr.Bill Campbell for exposing how shallow and hollow polemics and propoganda can be tasty 'tid-bits' and junk food for the blind and ultimately malnourished masses of readers, who having fed on this diet for an extended time consider it as real food and become incapable to distinguish between whats real and whats false; whats truth and whats propoganda. Until THIS Book comes along and throws the flood-lights of enquiry on it. Thanks and Kudos Dr.Campbell for such a factual appraisal!
