1 John Renard
Seven Doors to Islam: Spirituality and the Religious Life of Muslims
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508525 / 9788121508520; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Seven Doors to Islam reveals the religious faith and spiritual tradition of the world's one billion Muslims. Spanning Islamic civilization from Morocco to Indonesia, Seven Doors demonstrates how Muslims have used the literary and visual arts in all their richness and diversity to communicate religious values. Each of the seven chapters opens a "door" that leads progressively closer to the heart of Islam, from the foundational revelation in the Qur'an to the transcendent experience of the Sufi Mystics. Unlike most studies of Islam, which see spirituality as the concern of a minority of mystical seekers, Seven Doors demonstrates spirituality's central role in every aspect of the Islamic religious tradition. Printed Pages: 349 with 38 b/w illustrations. 010910

Windows on the House of Islam: Muslim Sources on Spirituality and Religious Life
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121508835 / 9788121508834; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Over the centuries and across the globe, Muslim authors and artists have given moving testimony to their experience of being members of the Islamic community. Their many vantage points came together in this collection, one that represents major Islamic groups from the past through the present and covers a range of themes essential to understanding Islamic spirituality and religious life. Windows on the House of Islam integrates a full range of literary and visual primary sources, representing major Islamic societies and communities from the past through the present, from Arabia to the United States, and covering a broad spectrum of themes essential to an understanding of Islamic spirituality and religious life. John Renard has united over seventy translations originating from a dozen languages-including Arabic, Persian, Chinese, and Indonesian-and contributed by over thirty of the world's top Islam scholars. In addition, more than five dozen illustrations thematically document a full range of artistic forms and historical periods, from ritual objects and architecture to manuscripts of religious texts. A companion volume to Seven Doors to Islam, Windows on the House of Islam is the first book of its kind to integrate such a wide range of literary and visual forms. It serves as both an introduction to Islamic religious primary sources as well as a supplement to general works on Islamic religion, spirituality, and culture. Printed Pages: 451 with 66 b/w illustrations. 000616
