Review:

"An invaluable contribution to the study of the subject and may well become a standard textbook . . . Highly recommended." -- Choice

"The mood of Sufism is conveyed ... with a clarity that is rare, even unique ... done in a responsible, non-proselytizing manner." -- Review of Books and Religion

'The discussion of Sufi aims, psychology, doctrine and method is original (many previously untranslated texts are cited), sensitive and readable. The mood of Sufism is conveyed here with a clarity that is rare, even unique, yet it is done in a responsible, non-proselytizing manner.' -- Review of Books and Religion
