Review quote
"[Rahman] is a mature thinker, at once well informed and basically realistic about the reigning myths of modern secularist society. He is also a clear writer capable of disarming simplicity and tightly reasoned, technically detailed argument." - Patrick D. Gaffney, Journal of Religion "An event that needs to be given close attention. What is more, the book would seem to deserve attention for another reason: its aim to provide an introduction to the content of the Qur''an, something which most would agree has been sorely lacking until now." - Andrew Rippin, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies "Here is a painstaking and positive effort to think through the Qur''an beyond the verse by verse, tediously grammatical, scrutiny which many have employed in past centuries." - Kenneth Cragg, Middle East Journal"
Biographical note
Fazlur Rahman (1919-88) was the Harold H. Swift Distinguished Service Professor of Islamic Thought at the University of Chicago. He was the author of ten books, including Islam and Modernity and Islam, also published by the University of Chicago Press.
