Interpreting the Qur’an in Context

In the latest installment of IQSA’s Review of Qur’anic Research 1, no. 6, Andrew C. Smith reviews Abdullah Saeed’s Reading the Qur’an in the Twenty-First Century: A Contextualist Approach (Routledge, 2014). Smith’s review addresses important and persistent questions raised in the book about the location and stability of textual meaning, and about the challenge of interpreting a traditional text in ever-changing social scenarios.
