"I was completely astounded at how this author took the three major world religions; Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, and summed them up in a less than a 200-page book. He not only explained the gist of these major religions but their origins and how they influenced each other’s beginnings. I found this most fascinating. His methodology is to be commended. He used a practical approach that I imagined most everyday people would use when undertaking such a path of self-discovery."

According to the 'Hadith' (Islamic Traditions) while ascending to God's throne, Muhammad sees his followers gathered outside the gates of paradise. He inquires of Adam and tells him to go to Allah and intercede for his followers that they may enter paradise. Adam responds 'I am not the intercessor you are looking for, because of my disobedience [ in the Garden]
Very interesting. The implication is that Adam could not be the intercessor because of his sinful nature. Only one person according to Islam was born holy (Muslims believe in the virgin birth of Jesus). Here is the link to:
