Egocentric or Scientific: The Christian Perspective of the Qur’ân? by Mustapha Abi and Abdullah Abdulkareem

Submitted by on September 28, 2009 – 2:59 amNo Comment

This article attempts to analyze the Protestant missionary representation of the Qur’an as exemplified by the journal of The Moslem World (MW). The analysis has focused on two major themes, namely, the collection of, and textual variety in the Qur’an. This representation, as will be shown, is coloured by the writers’ beliefs as well as assumptions about the Qur’an in particular, and Islam in general. It can be said that the reasons for their distorted view of Islam are to be found within both Western society and their Christian faith. The manner and method by which the Qur’an was depicted originated primarily from Evangelical Christians’ conviction of their own faith as the ultimate religious truth and the sole legitimate form of religious belief and expression. In fact, MW was conceived with such a view of Islam in general given its missionary nature, a view championed and reinforced by its founder and then editor, Samuel Zwemer.
