How to Approach and Undertand the Quran
By Jamaal al-Din M. Zarabozo
In this book, the author attempted to bridge the gap between Muslims and the Quran. He writes about what the Quran is and what a Muslims responsibility is towards it. The author also studies the effect that the Quran had upon the first generation of Muslims and attempts to answer questions as to why the Quran does not seem to have the same miraculous effect today. The book discusses how many Muslims currently approach the Quran and then goes on to discuss the main teachings of the Quran and how they should properly be approached. It also gives suggestions on reading the proper sources of tafseer or Qur'anic commentary. One reviewer wrote: "It will be a useful reading for all Muslims, new converts and those who have been practicing for years. As I was reading, I found passages that built such a powerful crescendo of argumentation and commentary, that I was deeply touched."
