Details: "This book demonstrates not only that Islam is compatible with religious diversity, inclusivity and plurality; it also shows, through a dazzling array of insights, that these values go to the very heart of the Islamic message. Using arguments which are both academically cogent and spiritually sensitive, the author shows that the meaning of the oneness of ultimate Reality in Islam strictly implies the multiplicity of religious paths leading to that Reality. Reading this book will help one to gain a clearer understanding of the wellsprings of tolerance in Islam, and to appreciate the fact that manifesting respect and tolerance to all revealed religions and their adherents is not so much an ethical possibility within Islam; it is a spiritual imperative. A much needed message for our times." —Reza Shah-Kazemi, author of The Other in the Light of the One: The Universality of the Quran and Interfaith Dialogue “This book is a lucid and compelling exposition of the ecumenical teachings of Islam from a Traditionalist perspective, steeped in the writings of S.H. Nasr and Frithjof Schuon, Rene Guenon and Titus Burckhardt. Eloquently written, brilliantly insightful, powerfully argued and meticulously annotated, it is an ideal source of reference not only for anyone interested in the sophia perennis in classical and contemporary Islamic thought, but for those who wish to understand Sufi perspectives on religious diversity, Shiite and Sufi Christology, Islam and the Divine Feminine, Hermeticism and the esoteric traditions in Islam.” —Leonard Lewisohn, Senior Lecturer in Persian, University of Exeter, England; editor of The Heritage of Sufism and Mawlana Rumi Review “One God, Many Prophets provides both an accessible overview of the Traditionalist School and a cogent, metaphysically grounded appraisal of the position in which Islam stands relative to prior revealed traditions. As the author adroitly demonstrates, traditional Islam is not merely tolerant of other faiths, but positively celebratory of them.” —Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, author of Saracen Chivalry: Counsels on Valor, Generosity, and the Mystical Quest “One God, Many Prophets is a well-written and comprehensive study that deserves wide readership among those who are hoping to understand spiritual Islam as a profoundly beautiful, peaceful and powerful religion.” —Tom Cheetham, author of The World Turned Inside Out: Henry Corbin and Islamic Mysticism
