The Bible and the Qur'an: Biblical Figures in the Islamic Tradition by John Kaltner and Younus Mirza

"The Bible and the Qur'an provides an overview of all the figures and groups who are mentioned in both the Bible and the Qur'an. Principal focus centres on the similarities and differences between the presentations of these characters in the two texts, with special emphasis placed on how they appear in the Islamic text. References are also included to how many of the individuals/groups discussed are treated in other Islamic sources." Amazon

Dr. Fran Leap, Professor, Religious Studies at Seton Hill University will facilitate the discussion.

20 copies of the book are available. The book is also available online through the University of Pittsburgh library system, please check your library for access to online version.

Our Faculty Readers' Forum provides cross-disciplinary reading materials – including books (fiction and nonfiction), articles, and papers related to Islamic studies – and a venue for discussion and exchange of ideas. Our long term goal is to broaden current course curriculum at member institutions to include Islamic studies content in ongoing courses and/or the creation of new courses.
