9780334029519: Discovering the Qur'an: A Contemporary Approach to a Veiled Text - 2nd Edition

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

About the Author:

Neal Robinson is a writer and illustrator who enjoys creating different reading material and illustrations for the very young reader. The illustrations Neal uses are similar in concept to cartoons. Born in Montgomery, Alabama where I came up with the characters while I was in high school. As I grew older, I improved the characters. I enjoyed making this book and I wanted the world to check out what I have done.

Review:

"Based on a magisterial command of Arabic, English, French, and German sources [Discovering the Qur'an is] a major analysis of the internal coherence of the Qur'an, taking into account the interrelationship of structure, intertextuality, meaning, and sound."―Muslim World Book Review

"An intelligent, sophisticated, and provocative book on a perplexing subject."―International Journal of Middle East Studies
