University Of Utrecht ( Professor Emeritus Of intercultural Theology )


UNIVERSITY OF UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS
INTERCULTURAL AND INTERRELIGIOUS STUDIES WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT OF THEOLOGY

18 December 2006

A few days ago I received a most wonderful and exciting book, Harun Yahya’s Atlas of Creation. It is a splendid illustration of the prehistoric past of our earth, with so many fossils engraved in stone and marble. Besides, it has a very powerful argument against evolutionism and in favour of the doctrine of creation by an Almighty Knowing Being, commonly called God, Allah, Tuhan, or with other names.

… Within the department of theology of Utrecht University we study scripture, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Muslim. We will take your writing into consideration and therefore I will place your book in our University Library.  As sign of our gratitude I herewith send you a series of comments on the story of creation as found in the Islamic tradition and especially among Muslims of Indonesia, my specialization. …

Yours,
Karel Steenbrink
Professor Emeritus of Intercultural Theology
