It looks as if there is a tremendous amount of interest, for which I am grateful, in my forthcoming book The Critical Qur’an: Explained from Key Islamic Commentaries and Contemporary Historical Research, which will be published in November by Bombardier Books. Even though it won’t be available for five months, it has already zoomed to the #1 spot in Amazon’s “History of Islam” category. Clearly people are tired of being lied to by those who insist, in the face of near-daily jihad violence, that Islam is a religion of peace. The Critical Qur’an provides an honest translation of the Qur’anic text, plus extensive explanatory notes showing how the text is understood in mainstream Islamic traditions. It is also the first Qur’an edition ever to include variant readings from Qur’anic manuscripts that differ from what has become the standard version.
