Review:

"This is a sensitive, landmark study of how Turkish Muslims today express their faith through a wide range of Islamic canonical and non-canonical worship or pious acts...outstanding, a rare contribution to learning and merits the widest possible readership." - Middle East Journal

"...a useful, clearly written account of Islam in modern Turkey."

-MESA Bulletin, Glenn Yocum

"It is the authors' unique blend of scholarship, personal experience, and spirituality that give the book its lasting validity." - International Journal of Middle East Studies, Anna G. Edmonds
