Modern Muslim Intellectuals and the Qur’an, by Suha Taji-Farouki
Suha Taji-Farouki, Modern Muslim Intellectuals and the Qur’an, Oxford University Press 2006
The essays in this volume examine ten Muslim intellectuals from the Arab world, Iran, Turkey, Indonesia, Pakistan, the USA, and Europe. These thinkers employ contemporary critical methods to interpret the Qur’an, arriving at conclusions that challenge those of earlier Muslim interpretation, and are critical of political Islam and progressive in orientation. The volume offers a framework for understanding their work, and responses to this among Muslim and Western audiences.
