The Composition of the Qur'an: Rhetorical Analysis

The text of the Qur'an appears to many to be desperately muddled and lacking any coherence. The Composition of the Qur'an provides a systematic presentation of the writing processes (or rhetoric) and argues that there is indeed a coherence to the Qur'anic text.

In Search of the Original Koran: The True History of the Revealed Text

Orthodox Muslims venerate the Koran as the sacred word of God, which they believe was literally revealed by dictation from the angel Gabriel to the prophet Muhammad. This fundamentalist attitude toward the Muslim holy book denies the possibility of error in the Koran — even though there are some fairly obvious self-contradictions, inconsistencies, and incoherent passages in the text.
