TED Talks - Lesley Hazleton: On reading the Koran

Journalist Lesley Hazleton gives a lecture at TED talks about her experience of reading the Quran.






TED's introduction to the lecture says: "Lesley Hazleton sat down one day to read the Koran. And what she found -- as a non-Muslim, a self-identified "tourist" in the Islamic holy book -- wasn't what she expected. With serious scholarship and warm humor, Hazleton shares the grace, flexibility and mystery she found, in this myth-debunking talk".

I certainly found it fascinating (and it is worth listening to just for Hazleton's wonderful voice alone).
