"A profound, startling new understanding of Jewish life, illuminating the forgotten heart of Jewish theology and practice: love"--
By Mohamad Jebara
Based on extensive scholarship, an innovative biography of the central text of Islam Over a billion copies of the Qur`an exist, yet it remains an enigma. Its classical Arabic language resists simple translation, and its non-linear style of abstract musings defies categorization. Moreover, those who champion its sanctity and compete to claim its mantle offer widely diverging interpretations of its core message at times with explosive results. Building on his intimate portrait of the Qur`an's prophet in Muhammad the World-Changer, Mohamad Jebara returns with a vivid profile of the book itself. While viewed in retrospect as the grand scripture of triumphant empires, Jebara reveals how the Qur`an unfolded over 22 years amidst intense persecution, suffering, and loneliness. The Life of the Qur`an recounts this vivid drama as a biography examining the book's obscured heritage, complex revelation, and contested legacy. The Qur`an re-emerges with clarity as a dynamic life force that seeks to inspire human beings to unleash their dormant potential despite often-overwhelming odds, in order to transform themselves and the world.

Pundits, politicians, and the public usually depict immigrants as either villains or victims. The villain narrative is that immigrants pose a threat--to our economy because they steal our jobs; our way of life because they change our culture; and to our safety and laws because of their criminality.

Do you need to quit golf. Take a short quiz. 1. Do you show your golf scorecards to, well, uh. . . anyone. 2. At dinner, do you find yourself practicing your grip on your utensils. (The Vs of the fork's first tine, for the righthander, should point to the right shoulder. ) 3. Look above you. Are there marks on the ceilings of your house because you can't help but try to "bust one" even when you're indoors and there is no ball.
