about this item

Beaumont and Kaisy-Friemuth present a new edition--with translation and commentary--of al-Radd al-jamil based on the three extant manuscripts, two in the Aya Sophia library in Istanbul and the third at the University of Leiden. The full title translates as A Fitting Refutation of the Divinity of Jesus from the Evidence of the Gospel, and the text is attributed to the famous 11th-century scholar Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (d. 1111). The refutation is in three sections, the first an exegetical study of six Biblical texts, and the second a refutation of the divinity of Jesus as believed by three Christian sects the Melkites, the Jacobites, and the Nestorians. The third section discusses the titles that Christians attribute to Jesus to support his divine status, and argues that the titles must be taken metaphorically. The text is in the original Arabic with facing paged of English. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
