As-Salam Alaykum,

The Quran clearly sanctions the veracity of previous scriptures at the time of the prophet. But Christians today claim that the Bible has been written by 40 different authors over a span of 1500 years. They say they were inspired by the holy spirit. Is that the Quranic view of how the Bible was written ?

I am inclined to believe that the Quran refers to scriptures that are directly written by God (through prophets),  not by inspired men. For instance, why isn't there a Gospel according to Jesus ?

I would appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on this issue.
