"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

"For the first time ever, the three-part autobiography of one of modern Egypt's greatest writers and thinkers is available in a single volume. The first part, An Egyptian Childhood (1929), is full of the sounds and smells of rural Egypt. It tells of the author's childhood and early education in a small village in Upper Egypt, as he learns not only to come to terms with his blindness but to excel in spite of it and win a place at the prestigious Azhar University in Cairo. The second part, The Stream of Days: A Student at the Azhar (1929), is an enthralling picture of student life in Egypt in the early 1900s, and the record of the growth of an unusually gifted personality. More than forty years later, Hussein published A Passage to France (1973), carrying the story on to his final attainment of a doctorate at the Sorbonne, a saga of perseverance in the face of daunting odds."--BOOK JACKET
