Calling the Quran amazing is not something only done by Muslims, who have an appreciation for The Book and who are pleased with it, it has been labelled amazing by non-Muslims as well. In fact even people who hate Islam very much have still called it amazing ...
The Canadian mathematician & theologian Dr.Gary Miller was active in Christian missionary work, but he soon began to discover many inconsistencies in the Bible. In 1978, he happened to read the Qur'an expecting that it, too, would contain a mixture of truth and falsehood. He discovered to his amazement that the message of the Qur'an was precisely the same as the essence of truth that he had distilled from the Bible. He became a Muslim and since then has been active in giving public presentations on Islam including radio and television appearances. He is also the author of several articles and publications about Islam. In his works Gary Miller (Abdul-Ahad Omar) shows how we can establish true faith by setting standards of truth. He illustrates a simple but effective method of finding out the right direction in our search for truth. “Amazing Quran” is one of popular compilation from his talks, reproduced here. View of non Muslims is an addition.
According to Dr.Gary Miller, the one thing which surprises non-Muslims who are examining the book very closely is that the Quran does not appear to them to be what they expected. What they assume is that they have an old book which came fourteen centuries ago from the
Arabian desert; and they expect that the book
should look something like that - an old book from the desert. And then they
find out that it does not resemble what they expected at all. Additionally, one
of the first things that some people assume is that because it is an old book
which comes from the desert, it should talk about the desert. Well the Quran
does talk about the desert - some of its imagery describes the desert; but it
also talks about the sea - what it’s like to be in a storm on the sea.
