The conclusion chapter discusses the limits of reformist Muslim approaches to Qur’ān polemics against other religions. The diversity of their views is further analyzed as providing a theoretical ground for the refinement of the threefold typology (exclusivism, inclusivism, and pluralism) that has often been used by modern tafsīr to describe various attitudes to the truth of other religions. It is argued that reformist Muslim approaches to the polemics of the Qur’ān should be seen as evolving discourses in such a way that would allow us to evaluate them in terms of the manner that they engage with various sets of arguments that are still relevant in the modern contexts to promote interreligious dialogue.
