THE QUR’AN REVEALED
A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF SAID NURSI'S EPISTLES OF LIGHT
Colin Turner’s analysis of Nursi’s Episties of Light presents Nursi’s commentary on the Quran in an especially interesting manner for an English-speaking audience.
The topics of Nursi’s episties including nature and causality, belief and unbelief, righteous action, sincerity and brotherhood, love, and politics cover the gamut of human existence and reflections on humankind’s place in the universe.
Colin Turner’s The Quran Revealed is a remarkable exercise in “thick description,” a method of inquiry associated with Clifford Geertz, that places a text or set of events in a context that allows outsiders to understand its significance.
