Neal Robinson's Discovering the Qur'an has now become a standard text-book, since it is an excellent resource for those who require a clear and accessible introductory text. It offers a clear interpretation of many aspects of the Qur'an, and is in three parts. The first explores how the book is experienced by Muslims in the context of faith; the second considers chronology, and dates of composition; and the third discusses the structure and coherence of the Qur'an. This new impression includes a new preface by the author. A crucial resource for all students of Islam. 'If anyone asked me to recommend a clear and comprehensive introduction to the nature and role of the Qur'an, I would look no further ... ' Profeessor Oliver Leaman, University of Kentucky in Expository Times ' ... an intelligent, sophisticated and provocative book on a perplexing subject.' Dr Martin Forward, Wesley House, Cambridge in The Epworth Review

Review:

"Clearly written, this is a very useful, important, and interesting book that will provide scholars with much to talk about concerning the way one is to read the Qur'an. [Robinson] does a great deal with topics that need much more discussion than they usually receive."―John Kelsay, Richard L. Rubenstein Professor of Religion, Florida State University

"If anyone asked me to recommend a clear and comprehensive introduction to the nature and role of the Qur'an, I would look no further than Neal Robinson's Discovering the Qur'an."―Oliver Leaman, professor of philosophy, University of Kentucky, and author of An Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy

"I have no doubt that this book is a major publication in its field."―Martin Forward, executive director of Aurora University's Center for Faith and Action, Illinois, and Helena Wackerlin Professor of Religious Studies
