"Various aspects of literary structure are studied, and the findings of the scholars shed new light on the compelling character of the Qur'an as a Holy Scripture with a unique centrality in the faith of Muslims, affecting their minds and hearts with its powerfully couched meaning." "A section of the book presents Muslim reactions to the symphonic power of literary expression in the Qur'an. The other two sections are devoted to scholarly studies by Muslim and non-Muslim scholars of the Qur'an, using recent literary theories in their analysis of the Qur'an's methods for the production of religious meaning."--Jacket." ;
