From the Back Cover
Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111) is generally acclaimed as the most influential thinker of medieval Islam. Among his most outstanding contributions to Muslim intellectual life were masterly defenses of Islamic orthodoxy, mysticism and law against the attacks of those who advocated purely legalistic or entirely esoteric readings of the religion. He hence articulated the Islam of the middle way, in balance between the extremes of the letter and the spirit. As such, his works have become a manifesto for modern Muslims struggling against extremist and hence heterodox readings of the faith.
