Foreword
In his objective study of the texts, Maurice Bucaille clears away many preconceivedideas about the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Qur'an. He tries, in this collectionof Writings, to separate what belongs to Revelation from what is the product of erroror human interpretation. His study sheds new light on the Holy Scriptures. At the endof a gripping account, he places the Believer before a point of cardinal importance: thecontinuity of a Revelation emanating from the same God, with modes of expressionthat differ in the course of time. It leads us to meditate upon those factors which, inour day, should spiritually unite rather than divide-Jews, Christians and Muslims.As a surgeon, Maurice Bucaille has often been in a situation where he was able toexamine not only people's bodies, but their souls. This is how he was struck by theexistence of Muslim piety and by aspects of Islam which remain unknown to the vastmajority of non-Muslims. In his search for explanations which are otherwise difficultto obtain, he learnt Arabic and studied the Qur'an. In it, he was surprised to findstatements on natural phenomena whose meaning can only be understood throughmodern scientific knowledge.He then turned to the question of the authenticity of the writings that constitute theHoly Scriptures of the monotheistic religions. Finally, in the case of the Bible, heproceeded to a confrontation between these writings and scientific data.The results of his research into the Judeo-Christian Revelation and the Qur'an are setout in this book.
Introduction
Each of the three monotheistic religions possess its own collection of Scriptures. Forthe faithful-be they Jews, Christians or Muslims-these documents constitute thefoundation of their belief. For them they are the material transcription of a divineRevelation; directly, as in the case of Abraham and Moses, who received thecommandments from God Himself, or indirectly, as in the case of Jesus andMuhammad, the first of whom stated that he was speaking in the name of the Father,and the second of whom transmitted to men the Revelation imparted to him byArchangel Gabriel.If we take into consideration the objective facts of religious history, we must place theOld Testament, the Gospels and the Qur'an on the same level as being collections of written Revelation. Although this attitude is in principle held by Muslims, the faithfulin the West under the predominantly Judeo-Christian influence refuse to ascribe to theQur'an the character of a book of Revelation.Such an attitude may be explained by the position each religious community adoptstowards the other two with regard to the Scriptures.Judaism has as its holy book the Hebraic Bible. This differs from the Old Testamentof the Christians in that the latter have included several books which did not exist inHebrew. In practice, this divergence hardly makes any difference to the doctrine.
