Partly based on the author's thesis (Ph.D.) entitled "Mapping a new country: textual criticism and the Qur'an manuscripts" and an essay entitled "Textual variants in the New Testament and Qur'anic manuscript tradition" published elsewhere in 2008.
Introduction Holy books have a history Textual criticism on the Bible and the Qur'an Kinds of variants in NT and Qur'an manuscripts Comparisons and conclusions from textual criticism Conclusion.
Holy Books is a new study of textual histories of the New Testament and Qur'an based on study of their earliest available manuscripts. Sanaa manuscripts and the Topkapi Mushaf are just some of the 21 Qur'an manuscripts used in this work. The conclusions verify the reliability of the New Testament and raise serious questions concerning traditional views of the Qur'an text.
