Has the Qur’an been Reliably Preserved?

Paul (Bilal) Williams here demonstrates how modern secular scholarship is a) discarding the radical historical-scepticism/ historical revisionism of the 1970s and b) affirming the reliability of the traditional (Islamic) account of the Qur’anic compilation. In particular, Paul refers to Professor Angelika Neuwirth’s entry in the Cambridge Companion to the Qur’an.

Why is this important?
