This new rendering of the Holy Quran into the English language is the first of its kind, since it is a combination of translation and exegesis in which the author 'opens out' the verses of the Holy Book to reveal some of the layers of meaning expounded by the Prophet and transmitted through the ages by the Prophet's companions, family and the scholars who followed them. The fruit of over thirty years of research into the principles of Quranic exegesis and hadith analysis, this work matches a depth of Arabic and Islamic learning with a mastery of English that is lucid and accessible while preserving the integrity of the original text.
'This book is more than a translation of the Quran into English; it is also an analysis, or interpretation, of the many layers of the Holy Quran. Turner conveys the emotional, cognitive, and cultural contexts of the Quran without compromising the integrity of the scripture.' - Middle East Journal
