Just had these delivered (from Amazon Prime)

This book is looks extremely juicy. Edited with an introduction by top Oxford scholar Yahya Michot it defends Ibn Taymiyya against unjust accusations of extremism. It could hardly be more topical.

I had to get this of course. I’m used to using Study Bibles (especially the NIV Study Bible) so its good to see this translation of the Quran with exhaustive notes and commentary. It is a massive work of scholarship. Beautifully produced too, as is befitting.

I also got this work by a top American academic I have not read before.
