Pocos libros han sido tan mal comprendidos a lo largo de l. a. historia como el Corán. Considerado los angeles palabra directa de Alá, fue enviado en una serie de revelaciones al profeta Mahoma, y es adorado por los musulmanes de todo el mundo, en quienes despierta devoción, pasión, y en ocasiones miedo.

En este libro, el respetado historiador de las religiones Bruce Lawrence, muestra por qué el Corán es el islam. Describe los orígenes de l. a. fe musulmana en los angeles Arabia del siglo VII y explica por qué el Corán ha de ser memorizado y recitado por sus seguidores. Lawrence también estudia a los escépticos y los comentaristas del libro, y evalúa su inmensa influencia en los angeles sociedad y los angeles política contemporáneas. Sobre todo, Lawrence subraya que el Corán es un libro sagrado de símbolos que no tiene un único mensaje. Es un libro que exige ser interpretado, y que solo puede ser comprendido correctamente a través de su historia.
