This volume is one of two edited by Andrew Rippin which are designed to complement one another, and to comprehend the principal trends in modern scholarship on the Qura (TM)an. Both volumes are provided with a new introduction by the editor, analysing this scholarship, and providing references for further study. The Qura (TM)an: Style and Contents reveals the variety of approaches followed within the study of the text. From NA ldekea (TM)s examination of style through Arkouna (TM)s project for the future, these scholarly statements reflect the historical development of the discipline, while providing overviews of key elements for the understanding of the Qura (TM)an.
