Review of Walid A. Saleh, In Defense of the Bible

Walid Saleh, of the University of Toronto, published a critical edition of a treatise written by the Qur’an commentator al-Biqāʿī (d. 885/1480) to defend himself against critics who assailed him for his reliance on the Bible in interpreting the Qur’an. Here is my review of the edition:
