This book continues the work of The Qura€™An in its Historical Context, in which an international group of scholars address an expanded range of topics on the Qura€™An and its origins, looking beyond medieval Islamic traditions to present the Qura€™Ana€™s own conversation with the religions and literatures of its day. Particular attention is paid to recent debates and controversies in the field, and to uncovering the Qura€™Ana€™s relationship with Judaism and Christianity. After a foreword by Abdolkarim Soroush, chapters by renowned experts cover: method in Qur'Anic Studies analysis of material evidence, including inscriptions and ancient manuscripts, for what they show of the Qur'Ana€™s origins the language of the Qur'An and proposed ways to emend our reading of the Qur'An how our knowledge of the religious groups at the time of the Qur'Ana€™s emergence might contribute to a better understanding of the text the Qur'Ana€™s conversation with Biblical literature and traditions that challenge the standard understanding of the holy book. This debate of recent controversial proposals for new interpretations of the Qur'An will shed new light on the Qura€™anic passages that have been shrouded in mystery and debate. As such, it will be a valuable reference for scholars of Islam, the Qura€™an, Christian-Muslim relations and the Middle East.8 Review of E. Badawi, M. Abdel Haleem, Arabic-English Dictionary ...
