I have started reading "Imperial Hubris - Why the West is Losing the War on Terror". The first chapter begins by dealing with the relationship between a Muslin and his/her God. There are references to the Holy Quran. I have a copy of the Penguin edition from 1990 (fifth revised edition - translated by N.J. Dawood). Please, I am looking for a recomendation for the which translation a woman, raised Catholic, now Gnostic, should be using as a first attempt to begin an understanding of the Muslim religion.
