Summary The Koran is one of the most ideologically influential texts in the world, with over a billion Muslims following its precepts. Yet within this singular religious community there are profound differences in attitudes about peace, violence, punishment, forgiveness, and the status of women. This eye-opening film goes deep into the heart of the Muslim world to explore the history and current state of Islam. It also delves into the personal lives of its subjects, who range from ayatollahs and grand imams to simple farmers and women living in veiled seclusion; their relationship with this holy Book reveals a complex, beautiful and often contradictory guide for humanity. "Fascinating, brave, and brilliant." - The London Times "Excellent...full of penetrating insights." - Miami Herald. "This thoughtful, intelligent documentary asks all the right questions." - The Guardian (UK). "A comprehensive and compelling perspective on the Koran, the turbulent history of the Islamic world and what may lie ahead. It reveals a religion of vast complexity and paradox." - Monsters and Critics.
