Description - The Norton Anthology of World Religions by Jane Dammen McAuliffe

"A major landmark of religious publishing and one to be widely welcomed."
William Dalrymple, New York Times

The Norton Anthology of World Religions offers a beautifully designed library of more than 1,000 primary texts, accompanied by headnotes, annotations, glossaries, maps, illustrations, chronologies, and a dazzling general introduction by Pulitzer Prize winner Jack Miles. This collection "will unsettle some current certainties about the nature of faith and, in so doing, may help its readers arrive at a nuanced and accurate perception of our predicament in this dangerously polarized world" (Karen Armstrong, New York Times).

Unprecedented in scope and approach, The Norton Anthology of World Religions: Islam brings together over 100 texts from the Qur'an in the seventh century to feminist and pluralist readings of the Qur'an in the twenty-first century. The volume features Jack Miles's illuminating General Introduction "How the West Learned to Compare Religions" as well as Jane Dammen McAuliffe's "Submission to God as the Wellspring of a Civilization," a lively primer on the history and core tenets of Islam.
