About the Book: The holy scriptures of the three Abrahamic religions share some of the main aspects of historical events which happened after Prophet Abraham. One topic which reveals many such shared aspects is the story of Moses who rose up against the despotic Pharaoh. The events during the period are important to the Muslims, Jews and Christians, and in many cases form the basis of the history and rituals of the three religions. This work is a comparative study of the Biblical and Qur’anic narrations of the story of Moses and Pharaoh. In doing so, Dr Maurice Bucaille, author of the bestselling 1976 treatise, ‘The Bible, The Qur’an and Science’, carefully avoids theoretical and speculative views in an attempt to cope only with facts. In his objective study of the texts, Maurice Bucaille clears away many preconceived ideas about the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Qur’an. He tries, in this collection of Writings, to separate what belongs to Revelation from what is the product of error or human interpretation. His study sheds new light on the Holy Scriptures. At the end of a gripping account, he places the Believer before a point of cardinal importance: the continuity of a expression that differ in the course of time. It leads us to meditate upon those factors which, in our day, should spiritually – unite rather than divide-Jews, Christians and Muslims.
