A valuable contribution to the study of tafsir. Reading the book from beginning to end has the effect of immersing the readers in the commentarial tradition and educating them in the aims and methods of Qur'anic exegesis. * Daniel A. Madigan, Associate Professor, Department of Theology, Georgetown University *
[T]his is a highly valuable contribution to the field which stakes out the frontiers in tafsir studies. In doing so it shows the need to at reconstructing the exegetes' hermeneutics. It also shows that early dating of sources and concepts appears to be becoming more plausible, possibly indicating that linguistics has functioned as the necessary sustenance of tafsir * Ulrika Martensson, Journal of Qur'anic Studies *
