About this item

Focusing primarily on the Qur'an and tafsir, both classical and modern, the studies collected here cover Islamic exegesis and tradition: formative and classical period; the Qur'an and Qur'anic studies: issues and themes; and Islam, Qur'an, and tafsir: modern discussions. Specific topics include whether the exegetical accounts of 'Urwa b. al-Zybayr are remnants of an old tafsir tradition, messianism and the shadow of history: Judaism and Islam in a time of uncertainty, inheriting Egypt: the Israelites and the Exodus in the Meccan Qur'an, reading the Qur'an chronologically : an aid to discourse coherence and thematic development, and locating the "esoteric" in Islamic studies.
