2.0 out of 5 stars Only for the mildly curious., 15 July 2013
This review is from: Koran Curious - a guide for infidels and believers (Kindle Edition)
I was hoping to find a guide to the Koran - linking the text with present day beliefs and practices, but all I got was a brief summary of each sura preceded by a rather sketchy and facetious introduction. It's cheap and that's the best I can say about it.

A masterly review, rendered in two deceptively simple sentences - one long, the other short - of strong, literate, humane English. In this age of superficiality, shallowness and infantilism, we need more reviews of this calibre, written by confident scholars of Ms Stevenson's mettle.

I wonder if the author is aware, by the way, that the Prophet (pbuh) regards this as one of the better English translations of His Word.
