This pioneering volume, the first in a series, presents a plurality of voices, methods and concerns in Qur'anic interpretation ranging from the 8th century to the present day. No previous work has drawn on such a comprehensive range of commentaries and covered such a wide spectrum of theological approaches.
On the Nature of the Divine analyses the works of Sunni, Shi'i, Ibadi, Mu'tazili, and Sufi commentators on six Qur'anic verses, revealing varied approaches to the scripture and its meaning. In their attempts to discern God's nature, the commentators inevitably introduce their theological concerns. Contextual introductions and annotated translations allow the reader to follow the genesis of key intellectual debates and religio-political attitudes still relevant to the lives of Muslims today. This combination of previously untranslated texts and extensive annotation provides an invaluable and innovative contribution to the field of Islamic Studies.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "Notwithstanding its modest title of being an 'anthology', it is massive scholarly feat which covers vast ground... The editors' selection of the commentators is wide-ranging and representative, enabling as it does readers to gain acquaintance with diverse
strands of thought and sectarian perspectives. It is quite impressive to encounter a multiplicity of approaches, mindsets, sectarian considerations, and tools and strategies at work in the numerous attempts to arrive at the meaning of the Qur'an... The volume is an epitome of solid scholarship."

--Abdur Raheem Kidwai, The Muslim World Book Review
