Description from the publisher --
This is a book in English studying the development of disciplines and branches of knowledge relating to Qur`anic studies. It touches upon the contributions of Muslim scholars in this field right from the start of the Prophetic era, and over the fourteen centuries of the Islamic calendar. Throughout these periods, the development of the exegesis (the tafsir tradition) reflects a wide variety of methods, presuppositions, focuses of interest and substantive conclusions. Biographies of selected Mufassirun and their approaches to the Qur`an are also discussed for the purpose of understanding their comprehensive worldview in the field of Qur`anic studies.
