Description
Set down in a series of revelations to the Prophet Muhammad, the Qur'an is understood to be the unmediated word of Allah—a ritual, political, and legal authority, an ethical and spiritual guide, and a literary masterpiece. In this book, religious scholar Bruce Lawrence shows precisely how the Qur'an is Islam. He describes the origins of the faith and assesses its tremendous influence on today's societies and politics. Above all, Lawrence emphasizes that the Qur'an is a sacred book of signs that has no single message; it demands interpretation.

"Lawrence, a professor of Islamic Studies at Duke University, offers an unusual 'biography' of the Qur'an, the Islamic holy book. He describes in each chapter how the Qur'an has been experienced throughout its 1400-year history, as it has fascinated, intrigued and guided millions of Muslims and non-Muslims.... This book, like the book it studies, is meditative and unique, a lovely read for any spiritual person, Muslim or not."—Publishers Weekly
