In the tradition of meditation' on the Holy Koran, Lex Hixon's contemplative illumination of selected passages from the Holy Book of Islam is devotional and uplifting. "The heart of Islam is the Holy Koran, and the heart of the Koran is the radiant affirmation that there is no reality but God. Lex Hixon has taken the precious words of Holy Koran and turned them over in his heart so they might speak to those of us who otherwise might not listen, might not hear, the radiant wisdom glowing so brightly and so freely within. And in the heart of the Koran, graciously transmitted' to us by Lex, is the heart of the Kosmos itself, calling' to each of us to remember the praises of every breath and every gesture and every movement we make. These are not rigidly literal translations, although they are faithful in every way, but rather mystical meditations from within the Koran itself, beautifully wrought and piercingly true. ",

As Muslims we are required to believe in previous Prophets and their Scriptures. In the Holy Qur'an we are told that Jesus (Isa) came with the Injil (Gospel). We cannot truly say if this was a book or only a collection of his oral teachings, but we believe he received the Injil. The four Gospels of modern day Christianity include sayings that are contrary to common sense and to the teachings of Isa found in the Holy Qur'an. Thus we must look elsewhere to find a source of Isa's teachings. The long lost Gospel of Barnabas is one such source. Recognized by Muslims the world over, it is a valuable source for comparative religion and the life history and teachings of Isa.

Thus, the reader will be better equipped to take a fresh look at the contribution made by genuine scientific discoveries - free from all ideo!ogy - and by the new light that has been cast on the Holy Scriptures.
