Aims, Methods and Contexts of Qur'anic Exegesis

Overview
Throughout the generations, Muslim scholars have attempted to convey the timeless messages of the Qur'an, while concurrently conveying the relevance of that word within their own times, places, and particular situations; but it can be difficult for readers today to understand how and why medieval interpreters chose to ascribe particular meanings to the Qur'an's verses. The essays in this work, by top scholars of the Qur'an and Qur'an commentary (tafs=ir), provide valuable perspectives on theoretical aims, practical methods, and contexts of these works, as well as on the study of the genre of tafs=ir. The combination of analysis and primary source material, in the form of editions and translations of the introductions to two works of tafs=ir, mean that it will be essential reading for scholars of the Qur'an and its commentarial tradition.
