The Qur'an: Modern Muslim Interpretationsby Massimo Campanini
Synopses & Reviews
The Qura (TM)an: Modern Muslim Interpretations offers a lucid guide to how Muslims have read the Qura (TM)an in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Massimo Campanini explores early approaches to the understanding of the Qura (TM)an, including that of the Salafis and the construction of the Islamic Renaissance Movement, contrasting the development of traditionalist and a ~scientifica (TM) interpretations and examining the work of the phenomenologists who followed. This lively book explores the radical ideas of Sayyid Qutb and his followers, a significant part of what is known as political Islamism, and investigates the idea of exegesis as a liberation theology, through the work of Esack and Wadud.
Students taking courses on the interpretation of the Qura (TM)an will find this an invaluable aid to their study, and it is essential reading for all those interested in how Muslims have understood the Qura (TM)an in the contemporary period.
