The Man Who Inspired the World's Fastest-Growing Religion Muhammad presents a fascinating portrait of the founder of a religion that continues to change the course of world history.

Countering those who dismiss Islam as fanatical and violent, Armstrong offers a clear, accessible, and balanced portrait of the central figure of one of the world's great religions.

J. Howard: A Prophet of Our Times tells in two parts the lifestyle and experiences of J. Howard Flower, a lifelong resident of Hartland Four Corners, Vermont. Part I details the biography of the man; Part II portrays the prophetic aspects of his lifestyle and experiences. Born in the latter part of the Nineteenth Century, Howard lived far in advance of the times. Time Herself bears this out. He loved freedom in all its aspects and abhorred conventionality in the same manner. A social reformer, he became a vegetarian at an early age, took care of his health in natural ways, wore his hair long, dressed in radical fashions. As a young man he scoffed at formal titles and marriage. In his view there was no such thing as inequality between the sexes. Long before it was accepted practice, and in defiance of the law, he was home schooling his children. Early on he cast formal religion out the window. Disagreeing vehemently with the need for war, disagreeing in the same way with the two major political parties, he was not afraid to make his positions known. We have here an individual destined to present a foreshadowing of social change.

In a world where powerful lobbies are vilifying the Qur'an as the underlying cause of conflicts-conflicts that are actually rooted in greed and the self-serving secular politics of oil, occupation and social injustice-how can non-Muslims discover the authentic teachings of the Qur'an? How can they work with Muslims to overcome mutual suspicions, stereotyping, and self-serving propaganda? A starting point is would be to recognize that Muslims worldwide are engaged in diverse and robust internal debates. While it is an integral part of the Islamic faith that the Qur'an is the infallible "Word of God," the plain fact is that there is significant disagreement among the faithful over what the revealed texts mean or imply on a host of issues. In Living the Qur'an in Our Times, the author combines theological insight and philosophical erudition to delve into the semantics of the Qur'an and its vision. This work explains why traditional religion has failed to respond adequately to challenges posed by modernity. It strives to recognize the intimate connection between a Muslim's struggle to live the Qur'an authentically and the many ethical and moral dilemmas one faces daily in one's life. Enlightening for all those who are unfamiliar with Islamic history and the Qur'an, this book explores foundational Islamic principles that emphasize mutual respect and cooperation among all people, thus helping cultivate a vibrant Islamic identity in today's interdependent, multicultural global environment.

• Reflections on current affairs through the lens of history •A resource for social justice and resilience Ida B. Wells was a powerful churchwoman and witness for justice and equity from 1878–1931. Born enslaved, her witness flowed through the struggles for justice in her lifetime, especially in the intersections of African Americans, women, and those who were poor. Her life is a profound witness for faith-based work of visionary power, resistance, and resilience for today’s world, when the forces of injustice stand in opposition to progress. These are exciting and dangerous times. Boundaries that previously seemed impenetrable are now being crossed. This book is a guide for the current state of affairs in American culture, enlivened by the historical perspective of Wells’ search for justice. The authors are an African-American woman and a child of white supremacy. Both have dedicated themselves to working, writing, and developing ministries oriented toward justice, equity, and mercy. This book can be used in all settings, but most especially in churches (pastors and other church leaders, study groups), seminaries, and universities.

Written by an American Muslim convert who has lived nearly 40 years among the Muslims, the author presents an insiders account of Islams true place within the family of religions, what it means to be a Muslim living in the shadow of the modern world, and how to cultivate a life of spirituality through the way of Islam in todays anti-spiritual environment. Within its pages, history unfolds, mysteries are unveiled, and secrets are revealed that shed light on the great human story of spiritual awakening and fulfillment. This rigorous and highly readable introduction to Islam goes a long way to remedy the lack of historical perspective and the narrowing of intellectual and spiritual scope contributing to the outer and inner crisis of the Muslim world, as well as the poor understanding of this religion in the West. Another significant merit of Herlihys book is the way it sets out the universal principles of Islam, shared with other traditional faiths, and its emphasis on the moral and spiritual fruits of the religion. This work is an invaluable resource for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, providing as it does a solid grounding in the traditional spirit of Islam. Patrick Laude, professor at Georgetown University, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Qatar Readers will find that this timely work by John Herlihy offers a sublime contribution to the field of Islamic Studies. Relevant for Muslims and non-Muslims alike, one of the books major themes is that the Islamic tradition converges with the unanimous tradition residing at the heart of each of the worlds religions. The book reminds us that the foundations of the modern and postmodern world were formulated in revolt from the sacred, which is an essential point to be recognized by anyone seeking to understand the crisis that consumes the contemporary epoch. This work provides ultimate answers to ultimate questions. Samuel Bendeck Sotillos, editor of Psychology and the Perennial Philosophy: Studies in Comparative Religion Amidst widespread miscomprehensions of Islam generated by Western media, readers who wish to understand the true nature of this noble tradition and its related spirituality will find this volume a trustworthy and illuminating guide. As a Western convert, philosopher, and above all practitioner, John Herlihy is well placed to dispel the fog of misunderstanding which often surrounds the subject of Islam. This book will be warmly welcomed by all those wishing to understand the timeless message of Islam, by seekers looking for practical guidance, and by those concerned with fostering a more harmonious global community of religions. Harry Oldmeadow, author of Frithjof Schuon and the Perennial Philosophy.
