An Oxford-educated scholar of the Middle East and a former foreign correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, Hugh Pope lived and worked in two dozen countries throughout the region. Following in the footsteps of Sir Richard Burton and Lawrence of Arabia, Hugh Pope's explorations of the people, politics, religion, and culture of Islamic nations shows there is no such thing as a monolithic "Muslim World".
How do we find God in a senseless world where we are overloaded with information and technology, distraught by the futility of politics and are constantly being controlled by the machines of progress? In a world obsessed with power and control, many are finding the inner peace we all seek by taking a step back instead of "forward" to identify with nature and common sense, back to the Garden of Eden in a sense. God has a far deeper and more personal meaning beyond the increasing complications of world religions and the rapid "progress" that mankind claims to be experiencing.
