This magisterial Norton Anthology, edited by world-renowned scholars, offers a portable library of more than 1,000 primary texts from the world's major religions. To help readers encounter strikingly unfamiliar texts with pleasure; accessible introductions, headnotes, annotations, pronouncing glossaries, maps, illustrations and chronologies are provided. For readers of any religion or none, The Norton Anthology of World Religions opens new worlds that, as Miles writes, invite us "to see others with a measure of openness, empathy, and good will..." Unprecedented in scope and approach, The Norton Anthology of World Religions: Islam brings together over 100 texts from the Qur'an in the seventh century to feminist and pluralist readings of the Qur'an in the twenty-first century. The volume features Jack Miles's illuminating General Introduction-"How the West Learned to Compare Religions"-as well as Jane Dammen McAuliffe's "Submission to God as the Wellspring of a Civilization," a lively primer on the history and core tenets of Islam.
