This new edition of the Qur'an is speci?cally designed to meet the needs of students of religion, and provides them with a one-volume resource comparable to what is available for the Jewish and Christian scriptures. The meticulously crafted translation affords readers not only a better sense of what the Qur'an says, but how it says it, in a rendition that strives to remain faithful to the way it was originally expressed. Accompanying the translation is an extensive set of annotations, keyed to the text for ready reference, and divided according to the topical headings at the bottom of each page. These annotations offer a wealth of linguistic and historical detail to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the text. They also contain abundant references to parallel passages within the Qur'an, as well as comparatively among the scriptures of Judaism and Christianity. With an introduction, guide to further reading, timeline, map, synopsis, and comprehensive index, this is the edition of the Qur'an that all students of religion—beginning as well as advanced—will want to possess for their exploration of Islam's central text.Printed Pages: 560.
