The Qur’an has spoken to Muslims for over one thousand years; it is seen as law-maker, moral code, and the word of God. Drawing on both contemporary and ancient sources, Esack outlines the key themes and explains the historical and cultural context of this unique work whilst examining its content, language and style, and the variety of approaches, including fundamentalist, feminist, and modernist, that have been used to interpret it. Farid Esack is an international recognised Muslim scholar, speaker and author. He is currently Bruggemann Chair in Inter-religious Studies at Xavier University, Cincinnati. OH.
