Sarah Risha’s new book aims to present through six chapters an introductory, yet at times advanced, picture of the aspects and characteristics of the Qurʾa¯nic curriculum.... [This book] would be a good resource for any instructor to present the main curricular perspectives in the Qurʾa¯n.

After reading countless books in the field of curriculum studies, I found this book, for the first time, to bring together three controversial topics: curriculum, methodology, and deep understanding of the diversity of learning processes. What I found most entertaining was the reference to the types of learners and the best Quran methodology of teaching each type. Every public policy maker should have this information and will find no better than this very book. Educators involved in teacher development and curriculum planning would treasure this book as it provides a new avenue in helping teachers become reflective, observant, and introspective professionals as they wish to become. I consider this book unique because it is short yet powerful and right to the point. It is good for both beginners as well as advanced teachers.
