Too often the Qur'an is taken out of context and used to promote the agenda of the person quoting the information(whether it be pro or con). This book should help provide a truer understanding of the Qur'an and the context of the guidance it provided and continues to provide.
Yahiya Emerick's edition is helpful because the language used is very clear and very contemporary, but even more helpful are the many, many notes Yahiya Emerick has included throughout the text to help the reader understand not just the meaning but also the context of what they are reading. This has completely opened up the text to me in ways that it has never been opened before. My studies of the Qur'an are more energized and more fruitful than they have ever been as a result.
I also appreciate the fact that this translation does not include the Arabic text. Why? Because this means that I can highlight and make notes in this edition and not worry about being disrespectful to the revealed text, like I used to do in my Bible.
I cannot recommend this translation highly enough to anyone seeking to really understand the text of the Qur'an.
