1 Jane Dammen McAuliffe (ed.)
The Cambridge Companion to Qur'an
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 052153934X / 9780521539340; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
As the living scriptural heritage of more than a billion people, the Qur'an (Koran) speaks with a powerful voice. Just as other scriptural religions, Islam has produced a long tradition of interpretation for its holy book. Nevertheless, efforts to introduce the Qur'an and its intellectual heritage to English-speaking audiences have been hampered by the lack of available resources. The Cambridge Companion to the Qur'an seeks to remedy that situation. In a discerning summation of the field, Jane McAuliffe brings together an international team of scholars to explain its complexities. Comprising fourteen chapters, each devoted to a topic of central importance, the book is rich in historical, linguistic and literary detail, while also reflecting the influence of other disciplines. For both the university student and the general reader, The Cambridge Companion to the Qur'an provides a fascinating entrée to a text that has shaped the lives of millions for centuries. • An authoritative and comprehensive guide to the Qur’an for students and general readers • Contributions from internationally renowned scholars in the field • Lavishly illustrated and accessibly composed Contents Introduction; Part I.
