This small book, part of our new Occasional Paper Series, brings into sharp relief established attitudes of Western academia toward the Qur’an, especially as evidenced in the only extant multi-volume reference work on the Qur’an in English—Brill’s Encyclopaedia of the Quran. The author exposes layers of centuries-old polemical literature against the Qur’an entrenched in putatively “rigorous and academic scholarship”, and underscores the need for Muslims to produce an alternate reference work on the Qur’an.
