Summary

A Two-Hour Koran is condensed and abridged, covering the most important elements of the Koran that concern non-Muslims. Standard Korans are widely known to be difficult to comprehend, but this version allows the listener to understand the basics of the Koran in the time it takes to watch a professional sports event.

The standard Korans are arranged by length of chapter, not in chronological order, and do not include the life of Mohammed for context. These Korans have no time reference, no Mohammed, and no story. Therefore, they are difficult to understand.

A Two-Hour Koran weaves Mohammed’s life back into the Koran so the verses have context and meaning. Everything is in time order, and the original story has been restored, providing the listener with a taste of Islam. This Koran concentrates on the political verses, or those verses that impact the non-Muslim.

Once you have listened to A Two-Hour Koran, you can pick up any Koran in the bookstore and make sense of what you are reading.

Dr Warner is exactly what his surname tells you

And a Warner is certainly what we need faced with the great enemy that we have, namely the huge ignorance of the people around us about what is contained within the texts.

I certainly intend to listen to the other parts of this series.

Thank you, Dr Warner, for your excellent analysis.

An excellent Critique of a controversial issue.

A balanced accurate analysis of the subject matter. Critical analysis of the Quran without special pleading for the Quran to be assessed by the common "Just so" argument.

Great Start

This is a great start for people trying to understand Islam. Take a moment to watch Dr. Warner's lectures at politicalislam.com.

Not Accurate

This writer is giving Islam a bad name and I don't appreciate it. Maybe he needs to get a little more educated on Islam. His PHD don't mean anything. He is an idiot.
