The religion of Islam is of vital concern to the modern world. In Muslims Volume 2: The Contemporary Period Andrew Rippin examines Muslims' perception of and reaction to the challenges and changes occurring in contemporary life and questions their ability to relate the Qur'an and the figure of Muhammed to 19th and 20th century culture.
The inherited world view of Islam is compared with the emerging newly-discovered world view of the late 20th century and is explored in two ways, firstly by examining modern Muslim views on religious authority and by considering their effect on the actual lived practice of Islam.
Essential reading for all scholars and lecturers of Islam and comparative religion.
