"I admire [El-Awa] for being one of the few contemporary young intellectuals with the ambition - and also the talent and scholarship - to force a dialogue between Western linguistics and Qur'anic hermeneutics... El-Awa's achievement in this book remains that of showing how the contemporary themes of Western linguistics are relevant to Qur'anic hermeneutics, and how an interpreter could spell out some of the complex arguments concerning the issue rather more precisely for her readers." - Abdul Rahim Afaki, Department of Philosophy, University of Karachi, Pakistan; Journal of Shi'a Islamic Studies Winter 2011, Vol IV No. 1 --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Top Customer Reviews
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.
