Description: Reading the Qur'an in the Modern World offers a lucid guide to the ways in which Muslims have read the Qur'an in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Massimo Campanini begins by exploring early approaches to the understanding of the Quran, including the Salafis and the construction of the Islamic Renaissance Movement. He then moves on to contrast the development of two major schools: the traditionalists and the 'scientific' interpreters. These were followed by the phenomenologists, who created a lively and original approach to exegesis. He explores the radical ideas of Sayyid Qutb and his followers, which are significant part of what has become known as political Islamism. Lastly he explores the idea of exegesis as a liberation theology, through the work of Esack and Wadud.Students taking courses on the interpretation of the Qur'an should find this an invaluable aid to their study; all those interested in how Muslims have understood the Qur'an in the contemporary period will also find this essential reading.
