Towards Islamic Authenticity: Qur’anic Translations in the Twenty-first Century. 6. Sectarian Approaches to Qur’anic Translations. 7. Deviant Qur’anic Translations: An Assessment. 8. Qur’anic Studies: The Road Ahead. Index. Professor Abdur Raheem Kidwai allows readers to interact with the Qur’anic translations and commentaries through his meticulous and unbiased reviews. From 1649 to the present, Qur’anic translations in English vary in language, style and temperament. An accomplished reviewer, Prof. Kidwai has set new pathways to approach the meaning and message of the sacred text. To this end, his two-volume Qur’anic reviews include a broad survey of Qur’anic literature in the twenty-first century. Kidwai’s Qur’anic worldview is succinctly expressed in one of his titles, God’s Word, Man’s Interpretations: A Critical Study of the 21st Century English Translations of the Quran. The present study assumes greater importance and relevance towards a coherent understanding of translations in today’s globalized and multifaith world.
