Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran: A Contribution to the Decoding of the Language of the Koran, by Christopher Luxenberg

Christoph Luxenberg is a pseudonym and that’s your first hint about the book being produced for political reasons rather than scholarly ones – taking into consideration that there are thousands of other up-to-date books in the market that are circulated without being passed through the lens of any Islamic Authority and/or official Institution whatsoever. This work is therefore of that of a layman instead of a scholar. And judging by the way he is trying to manipulate the language, I highly suspect that the author has a decent command or knowledge of the Arabic tongue!
