The beginning of this month saw the release of the third book in Penn State University Press’s series, Signifying (on) Scriptures, called Understanding the Qurʾanic Miracle Stories in the Modern Age by Dr. Isra Yazicioglu.
The book explores the details and implications of the Qur’an’s miracle stories. It is divided into three parts: “A Medieval Muslim Debate,” “Reframing the Debate on Miracles in Modern Terms,” and “Contemporary Connections.” In her analysis, the author engages the works of Ghazali, Ibn Rushd, and Said Nursi, among others.
Yazicioglu is Assistant Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at St. Joseph’s University.
Those interested in this new work can access its full description and its table of contents, as well as order the volume, here.
