WELCOME & INTRODUCTION
of Qur'an Liberation and Pluralism by Abdal-Hakim Murad. More.
"Esack's Islamic liberation theology is as
stunning and challenging as was Guiterrez's Christian liberation theology
... Esack offers a challenge for all religions: that human liberation and
interreligious dialogue cannot be realized without each other ... an extradinarily
good book." -- Paul Knitter, Professor of Theology, Xavier University,
challenging, controversial, passionate and unforgiving, this is an unprecendented
presonal account of a Muslim's life in the modern world. A perceptive and
ground-breaking account of modern Islam, there is a great deal to be learnt
from this book by anyone interested in the burning social and spiritual
issues of the day. -- From the cover
