"Major Themes of the Qur'an" is Fazlur Rahman's introduction to one of the richest texts in the history of religious thought.

"The religious future of Islam and the future of interfaith relationship . . . will be livelier and saner for the sort of Quranic centrality which "Major Themes of the Qur'an" exemplifies and serves."--Kenneth Cragg, "Middle East"" Journal"
