Reading the Qur'an: The Contemporary Relevance of the Sacred Text of Islam
Ziauddin Sardar
In his new book Reading the Qur'an, Ziauddin Sardar, one of Britain's leading cultural critics, provides an illuminating and highly personal look at the Qur'an and its role in Islam today. Sardar speaks out for a more open, less doctrinaire approach to reading the Qur'an, arguing that it is not fixed in stone for all time, but rather a dynamic text which every generation must encounter anew. Presented in cooperation with Asia Society & Museum.
Thursday, November 17, 2011, 6:30 p.m.*

Tickets: $15 for Non-Members, $10 for Morgan and Asia Society Members
*The exhibition Treasures of Islamic Manuscript Painting from the Morgan will be open at 5:30 p.m. especially for program attendees.
