THOMAS CLEARY is the pre-eminent translator of Buddhist and Taoist texts, including 'The Essential Tao', 'The Essential Confucius', 'The Secret of the Golden Flower', and the best-selling 'The Art of War'.
This book is in like-new condition/Paperback
Cleary has done a quite a few "essential" translations of sacred texts and this is just one in the series. It's titled, "The Essential Koran" because Cleary focuses on the spirit of the book and leaves out much of the narrations on jurisprudence. It's the passages that are central to the creed of the faith and are most memorized and recited by adherents that are reflected in this collection. Considering that I've gone through at least 12 copies of this book over the last 10 years, I probably should have drafted a review when I received my first copy. Every so often I'll look at my library and find that I've given away my last copy and I'll inevitably order a few more copies.
