"Aysha Hidayatullah cogently narrates American Muslim women's forays into scriptural interpretation, analyzes and critiques their assumptions and methods, and proposes strategies for moving past the aporias generated by existing exegetical approaches. Combining historical explication, lucid analysis, and theologically constructive critique, Feminist Edges of the Qur'an is a landmark contribution to scholarship and a must-read for anyone interested in gender, authority, and Islam." --Kecia Ali, author of Sexual Ethics and Islam
