The Qur'an, believed by Muslims to be the word of God, was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad 1400 years ago. Recognized as the greatest literary masterpiece in Arabic, the sacred text has nevertheless remained difficult to understand in its English translations. First published in 2004, M.A.S. Abdel Haleem's translation has been acclaimed for its success in avoiding archaism and cryptic language to produce a version that is both faithful to the original and easy to read. Now for the first time it is published with the original Arabic text to give a greater appreciation and understanding of the holy book. The traditional Arabic calligraphic pages are displayed alongside the English translation, which has been revised for this new edition. This fine binding edition features leather binding, gold page edges, a ribbon marker, and a slip-case. A useful general introduction on the revelation, stylistic features, issues of interpretation and translation of the Qur'an is included, together with summaries of each sura, essential footnotes and an index. The verses are individually numbered to facilitate comparison with the Arabic. It is an edition both for those familiar with the Qur'an and for those coming to it for the first time; the message of the Qur'an was directly addressed to all people regardless of class, gender, or age, and this dual-language edition is equally accessible to everyone.

This edited collection explores the historical dimensions, cultural practices, socio-economic mechanisms and political agendas that shape the notion of a national cuisine inside and outside of Japan. Japanese food is often perceived as pure, natural, healthy and timeless, and these words not only fuel a hype surrounding Japanese food and lifestyle worldwide, but also a domestic retro-movement that finds health and authenticity in ‘traditional’ ingredients, dishes and foodways. The authors in this volume bring together research from the fields of history, cultural and religious studies, food studies as well as political science and international relations, and aim to shed light on relevant aspects of culinary nationalism in Japan while unearthing the underlying patterns and processes in the construction of food identities.

Our contemporary world is fast becoming religiously diverse in a variety of ways. Thanks to globalization and migration, to mention only two current worldwide trends, people of diverse and sometimes mutually hostile faiths are now sharing neighborhoods and encountering one another's religious traditions on a daily basis. For scholars in religious studies and theology the issue to be examined is whether religious diversity is merely the result of historical development and social interaction, or whether it is inherent in the object of belief--part of the very structure of faith and our attempts to understand and express it. The essays in this volume range from explorations of the impact of religious diversity on religious studies to examples of interfaith encounter and dialogue, and current debates on Christian theology of religion. These essays examine not only the theoretical issues posed by religious pluralism to the study of religion and Christian theology but also concrete cases in which religious pluralism has been a bone of contention. Together, they open up new vistas for further conversation on the nature and development of religious pluralism.

Religionen haben ihre Ästhetik. Sie sprechen in Mythen und Bildern, sie binden ihre Anhänger durch die Anziehung ihrer Formen, Klänge und Rituale und nicht zuletzt durch die Poesie ihrer Texte. Für den Koran, das Gründungsdokument des Islams, gilt dies in besonderer Weise, ist doch das größte und für viele Theologen einzige Bestätigungswunder Mohammeds die sprachliche Schönheit und Vollkommenheit seiner Verkündigung. Die musikalische Rezitation des göttlichen Wortes ist für gläubige Muslime eine ästhetische Grunderfahrung und Ausgangspunkt faszinierender Gedankenreisen, die im Mittelpunkt dieses Buches stehen. Navid Kermanis bahnbrechende Studie wurde bei Erscheinen weithin als Meisterwerk gerühmt und hat seither sowohl der Koranwissenschaft als auch der Religionsästhetik wichtige Impulse gegeben. Längst ist sie zu einem auch international vielzitierten Klassiker der Kulturwissenschaft avanciert. Der Autor hat für das Buch den Ernst-Bloch-Förderpreis 2000 erhalten.
