Ingrid Mattson offers fresh, thoughtful, and learned insights into the Qur an that are rich in scholarly and historical detail, cultural depth and breadth, and personal meaning. This book will enlighten and engage the novice reader as well as those already familiar with the Qur an. I recommend it as an excellent companion to the study of Islam or the Qur an itself. Marcia Hermansen, Loyola University Chicago

Dr. Ingrid Mattson takes her readers, effortlessly, through the Qur′an with her eloquent ′zen′ like writing style. The book takes its readers on a journey of discovery into Islam′s Holy Scripture. It is an excellent introduction for students of Islam as well as non–academic circles as it touches upon the personnel effects of the Qur′an on the believer and its impact on society and culture at the same time maintaining a historical perspective of its formation. Khaled Keshk, DePaul University

In The Story of the Qur an, Second Edition, Professor Ingrid Mattson achieves a rare synthesis of cutting–edge scholarship and Islamic piety. With the Holy Qu ran as her guide and lens, Dr. Mattson graciously introduces the reader to Islam in all its major facets, from its origins to the present. This valuable book written by one of the great leaders of North American Islam should be must–reading for Muslims, Christians, Jews, and all who would understand the Qu ran and its followers. Recommended for university, Church, Synagogue, and Mosque classes and reading groups. Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, Jewish Theological Seminary
