The Qur’:an: Modern Muslim Interpretations offers a lucid guide to how Muslims have read the Qur’:an in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Massimo Campanini explores early approaches to the understanding of the Qur’:an, including that of the Salafis and the construction of the Islamic Renaissance Movement, contrasting the development of traditionalist and ‘:scientific’: interpretations and examining the work of the phenomenologists who followed. This lively book explores the radical ideas of Sayyid Qutb and his followers, a significant part of what is known as political Islamism, and investigates the idea of exegesis as a liberation theology, through the work of Esack and Wadud.

Students taking courses on the interpretation of the Qur’:an will find this an invaluable aid to their study, and it is essential reading for all those interested in how Muslims have understood the Qur’:an in the contemporary period.
