Synopsis

This new translation of the Qur'an is specifically designed for use in the college classroom, and offers students and instructors, as well as general readers, a one-volume resource comparable to what is available for the Jewish and Christian scriptures. It presents a reliable rendering into contemporary English of the artistry and power of the original Arabic, along with a wealth of supplementary annotations which will illuminate the text for first-time readers, yet still prove valuable to those long familiar with the Qur'an. These notes are replete with cross references, both internally to the Qur'an as well as externally to the scriptures of Judaism and Christianity (including non-canonical scriptures). In addition, transliterated Arabic is supplied for key Qur'anic terms, alternative renderings into English are offered where appropriate, and important historical and linguistic information is provided for a richer understanding and deeper appreciation of the text. Finally, this new edition contains an index to the Qur'an much more comprehensive than any other now on the market.

The index, along with a new introduction, set of maps, chronological table, and guide to the pronunciation of Arabic, makes this the edition of the Qur'an all English-speaking students of religion - beginning as well as advanced - will want to possess for their exploration and understanding of Islam's central text.
