(RNS) By the authors’ count, the Quran has been translated into English 212 times since the 17th century — but never like this.

Two friends, one Muslim and one Christian, have just published a Quran for English speakers to help fulfill a sacred shared mission: to show people of the world’s largest and second-largest faith groups how much their holy books have in common.

“Most of the tension that exists in the West in the post-9/11 era is because Christians fear Muslims and their book, the Quran,” said Safi Kaskas, the Muslim co-author of “The Qur’an  With References to the Bible.”
