The Golden Calf between Bible and Qur'an

Scripture, Polemic, and Exegesis from Late Antiquity to Islam

Michael Pregill

Oxford Studies in the Abrahamic Religions

  • A compelling exploration of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic understandings of the account of the Golden Calf
  • Contributes to the ongoing reevaluation of the relationship between Bible and Qur'an
  • The first major monograph on the story of the Golden Calf
  • The book also addresses the issue of Western approaches to the Qur'an, arguing that the historical reliance of scholars and translators on classical Muslim exegesis of scripture has led to misleading conclusions
