God’s Word, Man’s Interpretations: A Critical Study of the 21st Century English Translations of the Quran

 
Abdur Raheem Kidwai (Author)
Synopsis

God’s Word, Man’s Interpretations: A Critical Study of the 21st Century English Translations of the Quran evaluates the relative strengths and weaknesses of 30 English translations of the Quran which have come out recently, between 2000 and 2017. This assessment of the Quranic scholarship adumbrates several issues: translatability of the Word of God, translators’ ideological presuppositions and intrusions, the need and relevance of the English translation and the growing trends and changes in the field to which both Muslim and non-Muslim scholars alike have vigorously contributed. It also points out how the field of English translation of the Quran now serves as a new site for forging interfaith relations.
