Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“...this collection of essays is a most useful introduction to various aspects of Nursian spirituality and of the message of his Risale-i Nur. It is on a par with, if not better than, many other previously published collections of essays on Nursi and the cross-cultural and inter-religious appeal of the Nursian legacy.” — Journal of Islamic Studies

“Nursi is an interesting and highly relevant thinker today. The range of topics included here is impressive, and I especially liked the linking of work on Nursi to aspects of religious thought outside Islam. I suspect the book will be used in courses on Islamic studies as essential reading.” — Oliver Leaman, coauthor of Islam: The Key Concepts
