Dictation vs. Inspiration • Islam cf. Christianity

Are there differences in the way Christians conceive of their Bible, and the way Muslims conceive of their Qur’an?  The following excerpt is written by “From the Middle East,” a muslim missionary for unreached muslims:

Dictation – The Generous Qur’an is considered the actual speech of God. God did not inspire anyone to write it, He dictated it to Muhammad through Gabriel. This concept is present in the Holy Scriptures (i.e. the Ten Commandments and prophetic announcements), but dictation is not the only means through which God authors books. The Scriptures are certainly God-breathed, inspired and those who recorded them were carried along by the Spirit of God, but the authors’ respective personalities and various literary styles are evident as well.  

For more differences  between the Qur’an and the Bible, see the full post The Bible and the Qur’an are not the Same.
