Not only is this book a welcome addition to the existing literature on Islam, it also introduces a new approach to the understanding of Islam, particularly by non-Muslims - the linguistic approach. 

This book explores the substantive structure of the Quranic teachings in a fourfold relationship between God and man:

  • God is the creator of man
  • He communicates His Will to man through Revelation
  • There subsists a Lord-servant relationship between God and man
  • The concept of God as the God of goodness and mercy (for those who are thankful to Him) and the God of wrath (for those who reject Him)

Dr Izutsu's provides a rich and valuable description of the historical evolution of these concepts in pre-Islamic Arabia up to the appearance of Islam.
