The First and the Final Commandment : A Search for Truth in Revelation within the Abrahamic Religions
A thought-provoking book of non-conformist comparative religion, The First and Final Commandment analyses the Islamic claim of continuity of revelation from Judaism to Christianity and, in the end, to Islam. The fragility of traditional Judeo-Christian teachings is confronted, and refreshing insights offered.
A powerful challenge to conventional Judeo-Christian theology, The First and Final Commandment begins by defining the internal conflicts that fracture the metaphysical worlds of Judaism and Christianity from within, and indeed, which demand reappraisal of the Judeo-Christian scriptures themselves.
Incorporating detailed analysis, this work continues on to document the scriptural evidences that suggest continuity in revelation from Judaism to Christianity and, in the end, to orthodox (Sunni) Islam.
Provocative and thought-provoking, intelligent and inspiring, this book enters the melee of two thousand years of religious debate with clarity of vision, accuracy of detail, and common sense conclusions which boldly confront conventional Judeo-Christian conclusions.
