One thousand roads to Mecca : ten centuries of travelers writing about the Muslim pilgrimage by Michael Wolfe( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The pilgrimage to Mecca, or the Hajj, is a journey all Muslims are enjoined to make once in their lifetimes. Its purpose is to detach human beings from their homes and, by bringing them to Islam's birthplace, to emphasize the equality of all people before God. Since its inception in the seventh century, the Hajj has been the central theme in a large body of Islamic travel literature. Beginning with the European Renaissance, it has also been the subject for a handful of adventurous writers from the Christian West who, through conversion or connivance, managed to slip inside the walls of a city forbidden to non-Muslims. One Thousand Roads to Mecca collects significant works by observant writers from the East and West over the last ten centuries. These two very different literary traditions form distinct sides of a spirited conversation in which Mecca is the common destination and Islam the common subject of inquiry."
Taking back Islam : American Muslims reclaim their faith( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the months after September 11, 2001, American Muslims heard the familiar sounds of Islam being defined by others. Commentators, politicians, scholars, and wealthy terrorists were busily telling Muslims the "real meaning" of Islam. Western Muslims knew something had to be done. They gathered informally to discuss the past, the present, and how things ought to be. Over time, they began to conceive, then voice, then, finally, put to paper ideas about how they might define Islam in this century. This book is a bold collection of voices in the vanguard of the faith, voices of men and women who remain devout and utterly convinced of Islam's power to help create a just, ordered, and beautiful world but who are also unafraid to be critical of those who would distort Islam for violent or political ends.--From publisher description

Cut these words into my stone : ancient Greek epitaphs by Michael Wolfe( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cut These Words into My Stone offers evidence that ancient Greek life was not only celebrated in great heroic epics, but was also commemorated in hundreds of artfully composed verse epitaphs. They have been preserved in anthologies and gleaned from weathered headstones. Three-year-old Archianax, playing near a well, was drawn down by his own silent reflection. His mother, afraid he had no breath left, hauled him back up wringing wet. He had a little. He didn't taint the nymphs' deep home. He dozed off in her lap. He's sleeping still. These words, translated from the original Greek by poet and filmmaker Michael Wolfe, mark the passing of a child who died roughly 2,000 years ago. Ancient Greek epitaphs honor the lives, and often describe the deaths, of a rich cross section of Greek society, including people of all ages and classes - paupers, fishermen, tyrants, virgins, drunks, foot soldiers, generals - and some non-people - horses, dolphins, and insects. With brief commentary and notes, this bilingual collection of 127 short, witty, and often tender epigrams spans 1,000 years of the written word. Cut These Words into My Stone provides an engaging introduction to this corner of classical literature that continues to speak eloquently in our time
