Editorial Reviews

Review

"The writers of this thoughtful and wise book take us gently by the hand and show us, `Here is the one God, the God of us all, right here in the Quran.' This message is actually quite good news, although it challenges the assumption that God is wholly owned by Christianity, or any one religion. I hope that Out of Darkness Into Light is read widely and taken to heart so that we all can widen our circles of embrace and recognize the God of love and compassion in more people and places." ----Desmond Tutu, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and Archbishop Emeritus of Capetown, South Africa

"A magnificently engaging reflection on faith by authors who adhere to the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions. Elegantly written, highly readable, and eminently fulfilling for anyone interested in understanding what light Judaism, Christianity and Islam offer today." ----Amir Hussain, Associate Professor of Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount University and Co-chair of the Contemporary Islam Group of the American Academy of Religion<br /><br />

"An exciting book for those who want to explore more deeply the spiritual teachings of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism . . . inspires a healing conversation of spirit among the three Abrahamic faiths and provides nourishment for our souls and greater hope for peaceful and loving coexistence in our world." ----Ebrahim Moosa, Professor of Islamic Studies, Duke University<br /><br />

Review

"This marvellous book is an example of the theology that is done best when it is done comparatively. Out of Darkness into Light offers new insights for beginners as well as the most seasoned reader of scripture."

"A magnificently engaging reflection on faith by authors who adhere to the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions. Elegantly written, highly readable, and eminently fulfilling for anyone interested in understanding what light Judaism, Christianity and Islam offer today."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This long-awaited and much needed book about Spiritual Direction in the Qur'an is a wonderful antidote to popular media messages about Islam and the Sacred Text of Islam, the Qur'an. Prepare yourself to be surprised by what you discover about the Qur'an! Jamal Rahman is not only a practicing Muslim, but also a well-respected Sheik and a descendent and student of a respected lineage of Sufi Muslim teachers from Bangladesh. He is also a serious student of many other religious traditions, including Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity and Judaism. His Interfaith work and associations with his co-authors and others, have helped him to make vital connections between Islam and the other Abrahamic traditions. Jamal's outlook on the Qur'an is deep. He and his co-authors focus on universal themes and messages present in all the Abrahamic traditions. They do not avoid differences, but look at the sacred texts of all three traditions from a cultural and historical perspective which allows for personal interpretation. Most important, they encourage us to apply the teachings directly to our lives, and give many practical examples of just how to do that. This book is not about religion. It's about life.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rev. R. M. Peluso, Editor-in-chief, Interfaith Today on July 7, 2009
Format: Paperback
Out of Darkness...is an unusual work that provides insight, inspiration and practical steps to move us all forward in our spiritual evolution. It is oddly simple in pursuing such an ambitious course, and as such, it is personal, intuitive and accessible. The sound scholarship shatters myths and preconceptions and opens interfaith doors.
A work of profound beauty that touches and nourishes the inner most being every time it is read. Out of Darkness should be required reading for every seminary student, no matter what their religion. This is a great source book for interfaith dialogue.
