Product Description

From the Inside Flap

"A comprehensive tour of the exuberant landscape of Muslim religious life, past and present. With an impressive array of textual and visual works, Renard's kaleidoscopic survey sounds the death toll to the longstanding misconception that Islam is a dry and mechanistic religion devoid of spirituality. This is the best introductory book on Islam currently available."—Ahmet T. Karamustafa, Washington University

"Comprehensive and accessible, this book is a richly textured and wide-ranging introduction to Islamic spirituality and a refreshing change from the obsession with current politics that characterizes most approaches of Islam."—Carl W. Ernst, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Fantastic Introduction to the Religious Life of Muslims Jan. 11 2014
By Dalton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book. That's almost all I can say. The author deeply understands the ethos of the Islamic world and conveys it lucidly in his writing. I would recommend this book to anyone in the West who is looking for a finely written and accessible introduction to Islamic belief and practice.

Islamic religion and spirituality seems to be the author's specialty. He has also written these wonderful books I've been reading:

Friends of God:

Tales of God's Friends:

Knowledge of God in Classical Sufism:

An Unorganized, Tiresome Read June 4 2013
By Kurt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I came at this book as someone who wanted to learn more about the faith of Islam. This book provides a very in depth view into the spirituality of the Islamic faith. But is unorganized and often the tone of the author turns one away from the book because it is simply haughty. Would not recommend for someone who just wants to learn more about Islam.
