Reading the Qur’an in English

  Author:   Robert A. Campbell    
  Publisher:  Cape Breton University Press

The unique beauty and richness of Islam’s sacred book calls out for it to be read and enjoyed by all. To be open to following the structural logic of the Qur’an, Western expectations about the use of narrative, description and dialogue should be set aside. Robert Campbell provides this introductory guide to help readers experience the Qur’an on its own terms. Following his guidance, in conjunction with reading an English language version of the Qur’an, can reveal a great deal about the nature of Islam and about how the Qur’an compares with other Abrahamic scriptures.
