|A Christian Critique, Surah by Surah, Verse by Verse. Some call the Qur'an a peace loving document. Others use it as a call to war. How can you understand it if you never read it? For the first time, "Qur'an Revealed" provides an English translation of the Qur'an, with its one hundred fourteen surahs arranged in chronological order, and accompanied by interpretive notes from mainstream Islamic scholars, making its text understandable to any interested reader. More importantly, for the Christian reader, Greer's explanatory essays, surah-by-surah and verse-by-verse annotations, use historical-critical research to clarify the occasional similarities and the many differences between the Qur'an and the Bible.
In one volume, these questions are clearly and authoritatively answered: What does the Qur'an actually say? How do mainstream Islamic scholars interpret it? How does it line up with historical-critical analysis? How does it square with the Bible? In this day and age, where Islam has made important inroads into the West and is challenging a number of Western values and cultural norms. An annotated Qur'an should be a vital resource not only for interested Christians, but for people in general.
