This is a collection of brief quotes in modern English from the Holy Qur'an which encourages readers from all faith communities to reflect on the Oneness of God; God's overarching awareness, benevolence, power, and presence; the origins and purpose of life; God's promise to humankind; the critical value of committing to faith in One God; the essential virtues which constitute the best human conduct; the importance of patience, humility, gratitude, and prayer; and God's invitation to us to witness the signs and proofs of divinity in our world. The book is ideal for both daily reading and gift-giving for all ages, and for sharing the wisdom of the Holy Qur'an in interfaith contexts.
