Most of the problems visible in the Muslim world stem from the gap created by a commitment to tradition and wariness of modernity. Islam has the resources to bridge this gap. As a religion it is generally misunderstood not only by non-Muslim but,perhaps suprisingly, by Muslims as well.This book outlines the defining beliefs of Islam and devotional practices of Muslims. It explains how nad why the Islamic mood and the Muslim mind competes and,at times,conflicts with the promotion of modern popular cultre and the propogation of contemporary liberal values.
The author Mehmet Ozalp is from Sydney and the book gives a unique Australian perspective on the subject matter.
