While there are a few previous Spanish translations, this translation surpasses all the previous ones for many reasons, including:
- Its reliance on classical tafsir works and lexicons
- Its accuracy
- Its modern language and style
- The fact that this translation has been reviewed by a committee for both accuracy and style, thus making it a group project and not just an individual work.
This new edition has beautiful gold foil stamping on the cover and bigger font size on the pages, making it easier to read.
