Awesome Truth Telling without taking sides!
When I read the description, the book seemed exciting and new. It’s basically regurgitated spiritual stuff with scoring system to measure belief systems, documents and personalities. Churchill gets a pretty high score… I guess the author is unaware of colonial atrocities but the bad part is the sprinkle of opinionated segments containing ignorance and hate that have no reference or basis. I really wasted my money.
Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, a Sufi mystic, can best be remembered for his efforts to bring unity through understanding to the faithful of all religions.
In 1971 Bawa Muhaiyaddeen accepted an invitation to visit the United States. Here, once again, people from all religious, social and ethnic backgrounds would join to hear him speak. Across the United States, Canada and England, he won recognition from religious scholars, journalists, educators and world leaders. The United Nation's Assistant Secretary General, Robert Muller, asked for Bawa Muhaiyaddeen's guidance on behalf of all mankind. Time Magazine turned to him for clarification during the hostage crisis in 1980. Thousands more were touched by his wise words when interviewed in Psychology Today, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Pittsburgh Press.
Our true enemy is ignorance.
Karen Armstrong has done a wonderful job offering an accurate view of Islam.
Lewis admits he is an orientalist, viewing the world from that particular angle. The information is not balance but bias.
Amazing insight to the missing pieces of the puzzle; fills the vacuum left by European scholarship.
