Book Description HTML

Step by step, his work carefully and plausibly resurrects the reputation of the Baptist, not as a minor gospel figure, the forerunner of Christ, but as a major prophet in his own right. In this latest work he notes that the Quran, while not slighting Jesus, accords Yahya (John the Baptist) such a status, citing five key words in the Quranic text such as sayyid (chief), hasur (concealer of secrets), waliy (protector/guardian), Samiy (One of a Kind), and hanan (God—Gracious-5). He contends that these words, among others, have been misinterpreted by translators and commentators of the Quran, the result being that they have failed to confirm his unique status and his role in the whole messianic story.
