SEARCH FOR BEAUTY IN ISLAM CONFERENCE OF THE BOOKS By Khaled Abou El Fadl
SEARCH FOR BEAUTY IN ISLAM CONFERENCE OF THE BOOKS By Khaled Abou El Fadl. Based on actual cases there original essays present an honest and critical evaluation of the problems and challenges that confront Muslims in the contemporary world. Using the Muslim experience in the United States as a lens the author examines what he identifies as a pervasive alienation suffered by Muslims over their place in history, source of identity, and moral foundations. The author imagines himself sitting in a conference of Islamic books- the conference convening to examine the contemporary mulsim condition. Various influential intellectual trends are represented in this conference, but the author is not a passive observer, he is an active participant who reacts to the conference with introspection and critical moral insight.
