"A superb guide ... intelligently illuminates each thematically arranged passage and concisely summarizes centuries of Islamic interpretive wisdom." -- Scott C. Alexander, PhD, associate professor of Islam and director of Catholic-Muslim Studies, Catholic Theological Union

"Lays before us ... the insights and beauty of one of the world's great sacred texts. A valuable book for any reader who honestly wants to understand the Qur'an and what it teaches." -- Michael Wolfe, author of The Hadj: An American's Pilgrimage to Mecca

"Takes complex, wide-ranging aspects of Islam and makes them clear and accessible for the non-Muslim and Muslim alike. Comes alive with thoughtfully presented insights and reflections. Whether you have a passing interest in Islam, or have serious questions about this community of faith, you will want to consult [this book]." -- Rev. Steven Blackburn, PhD, Duncan Black Macdonald Center for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations

Format: Paperback
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about important and relevant verses from the Qur'an and Prophetic Sayings. The explanations are clear and succinct. Muslims can better understand their primary texts. Non-Muslims can find benefit in a conscise collection of verses from the Qu'ran that are well translated and intelligently explained.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Bilal Ansari on February 6, 2008
Format: Paperback
One of the first impressions of this book is love at first sight. Really when you are reading this book, the authors love of his tradition and passionate ability to inspire modern lovers of the tradition is phenomenal. You leave each chapter with a sense of remarkable peace of heart and mind, that I can only interpret as love. For the reader interested in a fight with Islam's two most sacred texts you finish the text exhausted and transformed. For the reader interested in a good understanding with Islam's two most sacred texts you leave with a sense of sincere appreciation. As a Muslim who works as a prison chaplain, I keep one in my office as a handbook for moments of insanity dealing with a literalist bent population. Often, this book is used as a great reference point of departure or closure in the development and delivery of my sermons every Friday for collective worship. All that is needed now is for the author to provide various homilies of a pastoral nature addressing traditional and modern concerns for diverse Muslim congregations and this would be a great contribution to chaplaincy students and practitioners. I would really love that!!!

This is one of the textbooks that my daughter needs for our last semester of undergraduate education. I hope that she uses it for good and it brings her an A in the class.

ook in great condition! Also, the text allowed me to understand more of the Muslim faith tradition and helped to better engage with my Muslim friends. Understanding a different faith culture has also helped me to understand my own faith and how it is similar and different to Islam.
