	[Niels Peter Lemche]  In 1998, an Iman gave a lecture to me and my
students in Damascus. One of his points was interesting. A commity of
liberal Muslim theologians had worked for years on the text of the Qur'an in
order to see whether it was the work of man or of God. Great surprise, they
had to conclude that such a text could not have been written by any man, so
it must be God who was the author. I repeat my earlier remark that this idea
about inspiration belongs in a different context.
