A Program for Muslims on the Textual History of the Qur'an
Series The Dividing Line 2020
I actually spent a few minutes at the start to acknowledge the ground-shaking "let's make Obergefell look small time" absurdity that came forth from Neil Gorsuch and the Supreme Court this morning, but only to say that we would focus upon that tomorrow. The rest of the program (from about seven minutes in as I recall) is addressed to my Muslim friends—those with whom I have debated, done dialogues, corresponded, etc. I addressed the comments made recently by Dr. Yasir Qadhi and Dr. Shabir Ally regarding the textual history of the Qur'an and, by implication, the need to engage in textual critical studies, just as we do with the New Testament. My hope is that these comments will lead for further discussions that will shed more light upon the issues that separate us.
