Video Description (from Youtube)
Garry Wills has been a leading commentator on political and religious life in America for decades, winner of a Pulitzer for "Lincoln at Gettysburg", and two National Book Critics Circle Awards for Criticism. In his new book, "What the Qur’an Meant", he offers a timely reconsideration of the sacred text. Reading with sympathy and rigor, Wills takes us back to the words themselves to discover how they have guided people down through the centuries and what other non–Muslims—such as Pope Francis—have found so inspiring.
