The Koran: It may be the most controversial book in the world. Some see it as a paean to peace, others call it a violent mandate for worldwide Islamic supremacy.
How can one book lead to such dramatically different conclusions? New York Times bestselling author Robert Spencer reveals the truth in The Complete Infidel's Guide to the Koran: not many Westerners know what's in the Koran because few have actually read it-even among the legions of politicians, diplomats, analysts, and editorial writers who vehemently insist that the Koran preaches tolerance.
Now Spencer unveils the mysteries lying behind this powerful book, guiding listeners through the controversies surrounding the Koran's origins and its most contentious passages. Stripping out the obsolete debates, Spencer focuses on the Koran's decrees toward Jews, Christians, and other infidels, explaining how they were viewed in Muhammad's time, what they've supposedly done wrong, and, most important, what the Koran has in store for them.

Not as good as his P.I.G. guide to Islam
I've been reading the Koran a lot lately to try to understand it, Robert Spencer does his best but he obviously has never lived with it for long. The best guide IMHO is Dr Mark A Gabriel, an Egyptian who had memorised it at thirteen years old and then went on to teach it at Al Azhar University, Islam's oldest and most venerable learning institution (dating from the 11th century) He really does leave you in no doubt as to what is in the Recitation (or Qu'ran) and it is a real eye opener.
Factual and to the point
Required reading for anyone with the remotest interest in religion generally.
Lol this is simply Terrible
