From the Publisher
"[A] gem of spiritual direction…. Clear and accessible … illuminates without overwhelming the text. It is going to the top of my 'recommended books' list."
—Ingrid Mattson, PhD, director, The Macdonald Center for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations and professor of Islamic studies and Christian-Muslim relations, Hartford Seminary; former president, Islamic Society of North America
"A groundbreaking event in Islamic publishing…. Gives this compact manual a new life in English translation by reviving the spirit and form of this classical text and by providing invaluable commentary on the original text."
—Muhammad Hozien, editor, Journal of Islamic Philosophy and Ghazali.org
“Gift[s] seekers with a clear, cogent translation of—and invaluable commentary on—one of the greatest works of Islamic spirituality by one of its greatest masters. Highly recommended.”
—Faraz Rabbani, executive director, SeekersGuidance (www.SeekersGuidance.org)
“A long-overdue contribution to the growing body of translations of al-Ghazali's writings and probably the best starting point for studying the thought of the man known as the Proof of Islam.”
—Ken Garden, PhD, assistant professor, Department of Religion, Tufts University
“An excellent translation of a priceless book. There are few scholars whose writings captured the essence of Islam as Ghazali’s did. This book deserves to be read by everyone.”
—Shaykh Hamza Karamali, Qibla for the Islamic Sciences (Qibla.com)
“Professor Spevack’s translation will be of value not only to students interested in al-Ghazali and Islamic traditions, but also to students of global spiritual and ethical traditions who are seeking a concise introduction to Islam.”
—Scott Girdner, PhD, assistant professor, Department of Philosophy, Randolph-Macon College
