I have read this translation... perhaps one of the best. Its in Old English..but very readable. The commentrary is unmatched to the many translations I have read. The commentary can further supplement the many other translations. The book's purpose is to identify man's purpose of life; its theme is Man. Though, no translation meets the original text as revealed, this translation along with its commentary sheds light to message. Interestingly, Moses (peace be upon him) is mentioned numerous times. The the book sheds his message as being no different than the one of Jesus and Muhammed (peace be upo them). A must have translation for your library and personal readings and collection.
