5.0 out of 5 stars A phenomenal work of research., 9 Jan. 2005
This review is from: The History of the Quranic Text, from Revelation to Compilation: A Comparative Study with the Old and New Testaments (Paperback)
The author of this work deserves international recognition for this superb book. Although the first I heard of the author was in the pages of Impact International, at the time I couldn't fathom the depths of his work. But more recently having been reintroduced to it, this time through, The Quran and the Orientalists, by Mohar Ali (a comendable book in its own right), I sought The History of the Quranic Text, purely to gain a deeper understanding of the history of the Quran. The author Azami, brilliantly, takes the reader through the painstaking process used by the early Muslims in meticulously preserving and distributing the word of God in its written form. Azami took on this work primarily to challenge the assertions of neo-Orinetalists who have in recant years invented new methods to further their attempts to "deconstruct" the Quran. In one swoop, Azami has ripped their hollow arguments and accusations to shreds, and in place presents a coherent picture of how the Quran was compiled and survives in the same form to this day, fulfilling God's own promise. Wholeheartedly recommended, along with Mohar Ali's The Quran and the Orientalists.
