Reviews

"Wills has written perhaps the best introduction to the Quran that I know of: elegant, insightful, even at times joyful...his encounter with it is a pleasure to read for anyone as open to discovery as he is."
--The New York Times

"A useful and worthy interpretation that non-Muslims will find illuminating...Best-selling Wills' stature will draw many readers."--Booklist "A work of intimate and charitable interreligious dialogue." -Publishers Weekly

Additional Praise for Garry Wills:
"Garry Wills is not only one of the country's most distinguished intellectuals but also one of its most provocative, bringing his learning to bear on great questions of history and contemporary politics." --The New York Times Book Review "America's greatest public intellectual." --Chicago Tribune "Garry Wills is simultaneously one of this country's leading public intellectuals and American Catholicism's most formidable lay scholar. . . . What makes Wills's contribution unique in a country whose shelves of religious books these days overflow with vitriol, bombast and treacle is his singular combination of intellectual integrity and authentically unsentimental spirituality." --Los Angeles Times
