The aim of this book, presented here for the first time as a fully revised and updated paperback, is to explore what it means to be a Muslim - a member of a community which embraces a quarter of the world's population - and to describe the forces which have shaped their hearts and minds. In this wide-ranging study the author is concerned not simply with Islam in isolation, but with the very nature of religious faith, its spiritual and intellectual foundations and the light it casts upon the mysteries and paradoxes of the human condition.
