We believe God told us exactly what we needed to know, and no
Unlike Christianity, Muslims have one version of their religion not different types like Christianity. Before Judaism, most religions worshipped many Gods, spirits, animals, or dead ancestors. The Torah tells the history of the Jews from Gods creation of the world to the death of Moses, a prophet who led his people out of slavery in ancient Egypt. Jewish history has been marked by persecution and exile. God often revealed wisdom to prophets, wisdom, which was in verbal form, has become known as sacred scripture.

The story and style of Purgatorio and Paradiso impacted the story and style of Voyage of the Dawn Treader; however, the main connection between Dante and Lewis is their dealings with biblical material and concepts (Daigle 41). Like Dante, Lewis draws from the Bible to aid in his novel’s plot. Both he and Dante take a typological approach to their narratives (Daigle 42). “The major events of salvation history become the norm for all events, the standard by which all events are interpreted and to which they all conform” (Daigle 42).
