Major Themes of the Qur'an: Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Major Themes of the Quran is Fazlur Rahmans introduction to one of the richest texts in the history of religious thought. In this classic work, Rahman unravels the Qurans complexities on themes such as God, society, revelation, and prophecy with the deep attachment of a Muslim educated in Islamic schools and the clarity of a scholar who taught for decades in the West.

 

“Generations of scholars have profited from [Rahmans] pioneering scholarly work by taking the questions he raised and the directions he outlined to new destinations.”--Ebrahim Moosa, from his new foreword

 

“The religious future of Islam and the future of interfaith relationship . . . will be livelier and saner for the sort of Quranic centrality which Major Themes of the Quran exemplifies and serves.”--Kenneth Cragg, Middle East Journal

 

“There shines through [a] rare combination of balanced scholarly judgment and profound personal commitment. . . . [Rahman is] eager to open up the mysteries of the Quran to a shrinking world sorely in need of both moral regeneration and better mutual understanding.”--Patrick D. Gaffney, Journal of Religion

 

“I cant think of any book more important, still, than Major Themes of the Quran.”--Michael Sells, author of Approaching the Quran

About the Author

Fazlur Rahman (1919-88) was 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.
