The Koran. A Very Short Introduction

The Koran. A Very Short Introduction

The Koran. A Very Short Introduction

BY MICHAEL COOK

Brief Description:
In this Very Short Introduction, Michael Cook provides a lucid and direct account of the significance of the Koran both in the modern world and in that of traditional Islam. He gives vivid accounts of its role in Muslim civilization, illustrates the diversity of interpretations championed by traditional and modern commentators, discusses the processes by which the book took shape, and compares it to other scriptures and classics of the historic cultures of Eurasia. Muslims are suspicious of the author because of his earlier writings on Hagarism from which he has now distanced himself.

Oxford University Press 2000 162 PP. Paper
