A mountain is defined as any hill that reaches 600 metres or more. Mountains come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some have sharp, pointed edges; others slope more gently. The terrain of a mountain is made up of peaks, valleys, escarpments and plateaus. And the collective name for a group of mountains is a mountain range. Two of the most famous mountain ranges in the world are America's Sierra Nevada and Africa's Atlas mountains. But there are bigger mountain ranges. In some places, there are whole chains of them. These are given the name cordillera.

The Geological Concept Of Mountains In The Quran

This book highlights the facts that were not known before the turn of the 20th century, and have just started to be understood within the framework of the recently introduced theory of landforms and plate tectonics. These point only to a single aspect of the miraculous nature of the Qur'an, namely its scientific notions. Among an endless list of evidences that go far beyond the scope of this publication, such explicit, precise and comprehensive scientific statements provide an eloquent testimony to the belief that the Qur'an is the Word of the Creator. Hence, it is the basic source of Divine guidance to man, at a time when all previous revelations have either been lost or distorted.

"The Sacred Writings Of ..." provides you with the essential works among the Christian writings. The volumes cover the beginning of Christianity until medieval times. This volume is accurately annotated, including * an extensive biography of the author and his life "Concerning the Orthodox Faith", the third book of the "Fountain of Wisdom", is the most important of John Damascene's writings and one of the most notable works of Christian antiquity. Its authority has always been great among the theologians of the East and West. Here, again, the author modestly disavows any claim of originality — any purpose to essay a new exposition of doctrinal truth. He assigns himself the less pretentious task of collecting in a single work the opinions of the ancient writers scattered through many volumes, and of systematizing and connecting them in a logical whole. It is no small credit to John of Damascus that he was able to give to the Church in the eighth century its first summary of connected theological opinions. At the command of Eugenius III it was rendered into Latin by Burgundio of Pisa, in 1150, shortly before Peter Lombard's "Book of Sentences" appeared. This translation was used by Peter Lombard and St. Thomas Aquinas, as well as by other theologians, till the Humanists rejected it for a more elegant one. The author follows the same order as does Theodoret of Cyrus in his "Epitome of Christian Doctrine". But, while he imitates the general plan of Theodoret, he does not make use of his method. He quotes, not only form the pages of Holy Writ, but also from the writings of the Fathers. As a result, his work is an inexhaustible thesaurus of tradition which became the standard for the great Scholastics who followed. In particular, he draws generously from Gregory of Nazianzus, whose works he seems to have absorbed, from Basil, Gregory of Nyssa, Cyril of Alexandria, Leo the Great, Athanasius, John Chrysostum, and Epiphanius. The work is divided into four books. This division, however, is an arbitrary one neither contemplated by the author nor justified by the Greek manuscript. It is probably the work of a Latin translator seeking to accommodate it to the style of the four books of Lombard's "Sentences".
