It summarizes different approaches to the Quran in term of its structure and coherence and combines between the rhetorical approach developed by Cuypers and the pair idea developed by Islahi and Cuypers! It provides an analysis of different examples like sura 2,3 as complementing each other and resembling one another in structure, themes, and the number of sections. Very good book in explaining the correlation of the suras and modern methods and studies of the Quran's coherence.
