I'm a fairly devoted Catholic. I have several friends of differing faiths and have always had an interest in learning about other religions. Recently I found a copy of the Koran and began reading it, but I've been a bit hesitant in continuing due to doubts.
While parts of the Koran have been confronting, for the most part it's been inspiring to read - particularly passages which speak of God's majesty and glory. Reading it has also encouraged me to read the Bible more, to understand how the texts relate to one another and to form a greater appreciation and respect for the importance that the Koran holds for many people.
Reading the Koran hasn't posed any threat to my faith, but even so - is it advisable for me to continue reading?
