The pen and the faith : eight modern Muslim writers and the Qurʼān by Kenneth Cragg( Book )

23 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is happening in Islam is of concern to more than Muslims. The Qur'an is the prime possession of Muslims: how then, are they reading and understanding their sacred Book today? This volume, originally published in 1985, examines eight writers from India, Egypt, Iran and Senegal. Their way with the Qur'an indicates how some in Islam respond to the pressures in life and thought, associated in the West with thinkers such as Kierkegaard, Marx, Camus, Kafka, Jung, Fanon and De Chardin."--Provided by publisher
The Qurʼan and the West by Kenneth Cragg( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For six decades Kenneth Cragg has been recognized and praised as one of the West's most gifted interpreters of Islam. In this latest work, Cragg argues that the West must put aside a "spiritual imperialism" that draws on western prescripts alien of Muslims and "learn to come within" Islam. Only then can a conversation begin that can relieve the misunderstandings and suspicion that has grown between Islam and the West - especially since 9/11." "Cragg makes clear that a misunderstanding of the tenets of a religion is a condition religious have suffered through the centuries and one to which Islam is no exception. He argues that the terrorists of 9/11 perverted the Qur'an's meaning and yet argues that fanaticism cannot be healed by being deplored or rebuked. Instead, the factors that induced it need to be resolved so that the "anxieties they shelter can be patiently allayed." The Qur'an and the West offers a means of study that reaches for a deeper knowledge of the Qur'an, engendering a new understanding of its holy teachings, and opening a means for a fruitful discourse."--Jacket

In his introduction to the anthology The Wisdom of the Sufis, Kenneth Cragg offers the Western reader valuable insight into the religion and richly poetic literature of the Middle East, and the esoteric, deeply experiential inner tradition of Islam. Bishop Cragg's selections of prayers and legends concern the task, search, and goal of the Sufi mystic-the dervish-and his introduction explains the unlikely growth of mysticism out of medieval orthodox Islam
