This volume rejects the notion that Islam’s sacred text is error free and cannot be critically evaluated. The study of the Koran must develop and mature. Scholars of Islam are of course familiar with the book’s many errors and contradictions, but these inherent flaws have rarely been revealed to a wider public. “The Origins of the Koran” is an attempt to remedy this deficiency by bringing together classic critical essays which raise key issues surrounding Islam’s holy book.
