Insisting that a monolithic view of Islam is both wrong and dangerous and also believing that the full lived experience of being Muslim can only adequately be described by those who can bear witness to their own traditions from within, Cornell (Middle East and Islamic studies, Emory U., US), Henry-Blakemore (co-founder and trustee, Islamic Texts Society of Cambridge, UK), and Safi (Islamic studies, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, US) present a five-volume work that is intended to provide non-Muslim general audiences at the senior high school and university undergraduate levels with as wide a depiction of Islamic doctrines, practices, and worldviews as possible. Some 50 articles by scholars that are also practicing Muslims representing a diverse range of places, traditions, cultures, and beliefs are presented in volumes that individually address the grand traditions and beliefs of the religion; the spiritual experience of Islam; everyday experiences of family, home, and society; Islamic cultures' art, aesthetics, and science; and Muslim progressives, modernists, and other reformers.
