520 8  The Qur'an is the foundational sacred text of the Islamic 
       faith. Traditionally revered as the literal word of God, 
       its pronouncements and discussions form the bedrock of 
       Islamic beliefs and teachings. Notwithstanding its 
       religious pre-eminence and the fact that it is the sacred 
       text for over one billion of the world's Muslims, the 
       Qur'an is also considered to be the matchless masterpiece 
       of the Arabic language. Its historical impact as a text 
       can be discerned in all aspects of the heritage of the 
       Arabic literary tradition. Over recent decades, academic 
       engagement with the Qur'an has produced an impressive 
       array of scholarship, ranging from detailed studies of the
       text's unique language, style and structure, to meticulous
       surveys of its contents, concepts and historical contexts.
       The Oxford Handbook of Qur'anic Studies is an essential 
       reference and starting point for those with an academic 
       interest in the Qur'an. It offers not only detailed 
       reviews of influential subjects in the field, but also a 
       critical overview of developments in the research 
       discourse. It explores the tradition of Qur'anic exegesis 
       and hermeneutics, making it a comprehensive academic 
       resource for the study of the Qur'an. No single volume 
       devoted to such a broad academic survey of the state of 
       the field currently exists
