The Qur'an: A New Translation
By Thomas Cleary
paperback 301 pages
Published by Starlatch Press USA
English Only, Ideal as a Gift to Non Muslims

This is a new and complete translation of the Qur’an—the Islamic scripture—by one of the premier translators of religious texts in the world. The meanings of this sacred text are rendered into the English language with subtle touches of poetry and crisp prose, allowing the reader an opportunity to understand not only the evident meaning of the Qur’an but something of the soul and spirit it evokes. This direct and timely rendition is an essential source for the modern reader.

At the heart of Islam is the Quran, and at the heart of the Quran is very difficult to translate oral poetry. Indeed Muslims declare that the sheer beauty of the original Arabic verses is evidence of its divine origins. Translations of any sort are therefore only a glimpse of the Real Thing

Thomas Cleary – Holding a Ph.D. in East Asian Languages and Civilizations from Harvard University, he is the translator of over fifty volumes of Buddhist, Taoist, Confucian, and Islamic texts from Sanskrit, Chinese, Japanese, Pali and Arabic- including the best-selling Art of War.
