With new translations of 725 verses, this compact introduction and reader's guide to the Qur'an gives non-Arabic speakers the most precise translations available together with the tools they need to understand the text. It deals with sensitive issues regarding the interpretation of sacred texts and helps students to understand the differing points of view and major debates. A substantial explanatory introduction summarises the historical and literary issues and engages with the religious and political context of understanding the Qur'an today, including an appreciation of the ritual and oral uses of text.

Review:

This elegant guide on how to read and understand the text sacred to Muslims ... clearly explains several scholarly concepts behind Qur'anic understanding ... and the interweaving and symmetrical structure of the book. --Publishers Weekly

This will serve both as a fine teaching tool at the college or seminary level and as a useful resource for engaged nonspecialists, who will find it challenging but rewarding. --Library Journal

A very well-written, remarkably accessible, timely and important book. It is sure to be read widely. --Muhammad Qasim Zaman, Princeton University
