From the Back Cover:

Since publication The Story of the Qurʼan has received high praise for its sensitivity, deft scholarship, and carefully balanced portrayal of the study of the Qur'an and its place in historic and contemporary Muslim society. Acclaimed Islamic scholar Ingrid Mattson now updates her authoritative and comprehensive introduction through the addition of expanded sections on the Qur’an in art and architecture, in the life cycle of Muslims, and in Islamic ethics and law. Through a close examination of the doctrines in the Qur'an, Mattson reveals their significance to individual Muslims and the societies in which they live.

Other key themes addressed include the Qur’an’s most important historical interpretations, significant figures who transmitted and taught the sacred scripture over the centuries, and the influence of the Qur'an on major aspects of Muslim society – including personal relationships, popular culture, political movements, science, and literature. Combining scholarly precision with an engaging style, The Story of the Qurʼan, Second Edition, offers a fascinating and unique account of the history and current place of the Qur’an in Muslim life.

Ingrid Mattson is London and Windsor Chair of Islamic Studies at Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario. She is a recognized Islamic religious and interfaith leader.
