Books that shook the World: The Qur'an by Bruce Lawrence.
The Qur'an was not written by Bruce Lawrence. It is the direct word of God as told to Muhammad (pbh). I would not wish to confuse anybody. This was not The Qur'an. This was a series of essays outlining different historical and political interpretations of The Qur'an. And a good read it was too. I rather wish I had actually read The Qur'an in order to have understood this a bit more. As it is, I shall just value the enjoyment and curiosity I took away from this work.
