Christopher Melchert examines the forefather of the fourth of the
four principal Sunni schools of jurisprudence, the Hanbali.
Upholding the view that the Qur'an was uncreated and the direct
word of God, Ahmad ibn Hanbal (780-855) thought that the holy text
should be read literally, rejecting any possibility for
metaphorical or revisionist interpretation. Melchert assesses the
importance of ibn Hanbal's teachings and analyses their relevance
in modern Sunni Islam.
