Douglas-Klotz is a wonderful interpreter of the text traditions of Aramaic, the linguistic precursor of both Arabic and Hebrew. As a result, his commentary of the 99 names is able to show the common spiritual roots of both Judeo-Christian and Islamic tradition so that their deep connections are clear, however muddy and troubled their modern relationships may be. He has in many other books done serious Christians a great service in helping them to understand Jesus as a first century person of Aramaic culture (Prayers of the Cosmos, Blessings of the Cosmos, The Hidden Gospel) and by introducing them to the importance of Jesus in Muslim tradition and particularly in the Sufi path. This book goes into the linguistic roots of names more than other translations I have seen of the text and so makes it more accessible to readers who come to the text from outside Islam. I fell in love with Sufi path of pure Divine love which has very little of the technical focus that is so common in yoga practice. A fantastic read whether or not you are a Sufi and a wonderful peek into the devotional world of Islam.
