Speaking Qur’an: An American Scripture with Professor Timur Yuskaev


Join us to celebrate the debut of Professor Timur Yuskaev’s first book, Speaking Qur’an: An American Scripture (Studies in Comparative Religion).

The book, due out in mid-October, “examines how Muslim Americans have been participating in their country’s cultural, social, religious, and political life.”

According to the publisher, “Essential to this process, [Yuskaev] shows, is how the Qur’an has become an evermore deeply American text that speaks to central issues in the lives of American Muslims through the spoken-word interpretations of Muslim preachers, scholars, and activists.”
