An Islamic Worldview from Turkey : Religion in a Modern, Secular and Democratic State Hardback
Part of the Palgrave Series in Islamic Theology, Law, and History series
This book is a journey into the heart of an Islamic worldview. It asks challenging questions of far-reaching consequence, addressing matters such as the Qur'an and revelation; rituals and symbols embraced; nature of God, of humans, and of our knowing; dignity of the human, sacredness of life, and more.
It precludes easy, prescribed answers, preferring instead thoughtful reflection on two basic questions: What does it mean to love God?
What does it mean to be a good person? Carefully crafted responses are presented by a group of scholars from Qur'an Studies, Worldview Studies, Women's Studies, Cultural Studies and Religious Education. It uncovers a dynamic understanding of Islam; one that meets challenges of the present, counters harsh criticisms, and breathes new life into a rich and longstanding tradition that continues to impact the lives of billions of people around the world.
