Approaches to the Qur'an Hardback
Edited by G. R. Hawting
Part of the SOAS/Routledge Studies on the Middle East series
In recent years, the study of the Qur'an and its interpretation has expanded to incorporate insights gained from historical, biblical, literary and critical studies.
A variety of approaches to the Qur'an and the Muslim exegetical tradition are currently available.
Approaches to the Qur'an consists of thirteen essays by leading scholars, both Muslim and non-Muslim, in the fields of qur'anic studies and Islamic studies.
Taken together, they offer a sample of the aims, methods and topics of enquiry now being pursued.
Each study has a full critical apparatus, and the book includes a consolidated bibliography which will be of great value to students and specialists.
