CONFERENCE OF THE BOOKS: The Search for Beauty in Islam

Lanham, Maryland: University Press of America, Inc., 2001. First Edition. Trade paperback. Inscribed by Abou El Fadl on the front flyleaf. "Using the Muslim experience in the United States as a lens, the author examines what he identifies as a pervasive alienation suffered by Muslims over their place in history, source of identity, and moral foundations. The author imagines himself sitting in a conference of Islamic books - the Conference convening to examine the contemporary Muslim condition. Various influential intellectual trends are represented in this Conference, but the author is not a passive observer, he is an active participant who reacts to the Conference with introspection and critical moral insight. The author positions himself on a bridge between the intellectual heritage of Islam and the oppressive Muslim present, arguing that the salvation of one is intricately linked to the other." Octavo.
