About this title


In this collection of thirteen faith-biographies of literary and religious individuals from Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and Indian beliefs, Kenneth Cragg, widely acknowledged as the premier Western Islamicist in the world, tells these stories in ways that emphasize the importance of religious tolerance and respect for others. All these figures stand in the presence of mystery and their stories illuminate that sacred experience.

About the Author:

KENNETH CRAGG has served as both scholar and bishop in the lands of the Middle East and also held academic posts in the UK, Lebanon, Nigeria and the USA. For many years Bishop Cragg lived and served in the Middle East, supervising the regional Anglican Churches both there and in parts of Africa. His mastery of Arabic and knowledge of the Qur'an have earned him credibility with Muslims, particularly among Islamic scholars and Imams who often invite him to deliver lectures in their conferences and seminars. He is the author of many studies in contemporary relations between the Semitic faiths. He is an Honorary Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford, and an Hon. D.D. of the University of Leeds and former Bye-Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. He presently serves as Honorary Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Oxford.
