Religious Studies KS3: Q is for Qur’an and other holy books

When it comes to books, the holiest sell the best. This animated summary is all about the most popular and revered books in the world: holy texts.

The Qur’an, the Bible, the Torah and the Guru Granth Sahib are manuscripts that many believe to have come from God himself, and as such they are at the core of their respective religions.

This playful film will teach students about their mythical origins and religious significance.

This is from the series: A-Z of Religion and Beliefs
