Allows me to read the Qur'an in a purer form
I recommend The Qur'an: A Complete Revelation over other translations of the Qur'an due to the clear and transparent supporting work presented by Sam Gerrans; the fact its work was conducted without pre-installed assumptions, and its meanings are not drawn from traditional bias.
The text format/layout is easier to follow and read. It is also not laced with extra texts which attempt to explain meaning but which often push the free-thinking person studying the scripture in a direction that man has decided upon.
I had already accepted that the Qur'an is the word of God but struggled to rationalize or understand how this book translated into what is Traditionalist Islam that we know today. This version allows me to read the Qur'an in a purer form, with Qur'anic and historical evidence to support its true meanings.
This in my opinion is the most important work on the word of God since its original revelation.
