5.0 out of 5 stars english speakers who dont speak arabic, 5 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Textual Relations in the Qur'an: Relevance, Coherence and Structure (Routledge Studies in the Quran) (Paperback)
first of all very heavy/ technical/ geeky book, took me a long time to get to the main meat of the book, but once i got through the first few pages the rest was very very enjoyable, shows how a passage is linked to the next how the conversation proceeds and advances into the next even if it appears completely divorced from the last small subtle indicators which normally go unnoticed, shows how each and every ayah is related and warranted by the last ayah.
she take the approach that the reader knows nothing when reading the surah and as the reader works their way through the words the library of words and context are extracted and the library grows by each word and she keeps reminding us aware of the changes inside the mind of the reader and shows how seamlessly and in sync the text is with the readers thoughts making the passages relevant to the readers questions as they progress through the utterance.
recommend the book if you have ever wondered what make the quran miraculous this doesn't do the quran justice but its definelty a great book in English!
