I read parts of that paper of Coughlin's you link. His bibliography is particularly useful. This one:

al-Misri, Ahmad ibn Naqib. ‘Umdat al-Salik (Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of
Islamic Sacred Law). Rev. ed. trans. Nuh Ha Mim Keller. Beltsville: Amana
Publications, 1994.

is a real beaut. Islamic jurisprudence (which is essentially their rules for war, and war is eternal in Islam) is based on the rule of abrogation. Thus, the peaceful surahs in the earlier sections of the Koran are abrogated by the later, more murderous ones. Those sayings carry the real weight of Islamic intentions toward us.
