In recent years, the Qur'an has come to the forefront of Islamic studies, both in its role as scripture and as literature within the Muslim community. However, traditional interpretation of the book, commonly termed "Tafsir," remains a vast, virtually untapped area of investigation.

The essays are divided into four major sections-- formation and development, genres, sectarian dimensions, and modern trends.
