    Seems to me the main theme of the book is putting down the name, person, and work of Jesus Christ.

    With the news media and some stories they do on the 700 Club I have read a few of them. Not that I woke up that day and decided to or really wanted to. So I had to honest and say I have read a few parts of it. :D

    I have a translated copy of the Koran here, and i'm eventually going to read it.
    I'm treating it like the book of mormon...you can't really understand the beliefs until you have actually read their information and not relied on just other folk's research.

    I don't have to read a Playboy to know that it is full of filth.

    Same goes with this...

    I have read The Koran, The Bhagavad-Gita, Buddhist scripture, works by Confucius, David Hume, Nietzsche and Sartre. I have read Josh McDowell and Robert Ingersoll. Books in defense of atheism and books by people who think Easter is a sinful abomination because of its pagan origins.

    There's not much that I won't read.

    Yep, read it all a good number of years ago. Also read a good number of religious literature of numerous other cultures. Hasn't shaken the faith, quite the opposite, it has made mine stronger.

    Was given an English translation and commentary, but was told it was not the "real" Koran. It HAD to be read in Arabic; to translate it is to lose its effectiveness and meaning.

    Thankfully, I can read an English translation of the REAL Word of God and it is still powerful and life-changing.

    My husband is from a Muslim country, so when we first were dating I picked up an English translation. Maybe it was the particular translation, but I found it unbearably tedious.

    I'd like to try it again, to understand.
