A Spectator's Guide to World Religions 3rd Edition, John Dickson
1 A Spectator's Guide to World Religions 3rd Edition
John Dickson Australia Aquila Press 2014 1925041514 / 9781925041514 Soft cover New Book 23.4 x 15.2 x 1.5 cm 
Written in John Dickson's characteristically non-technical and readable style, this book urges the reader to become more than mere spectators when approaching the religions of the world. (Updated Edition) The world is a very religious place. Wherever you look, people are worshipping, praying, believing, following, even dying for their faith. But are all faiths the same? Do they all call on the same God using different names? Are their beliefs and practices simply cultural expressions of the same spiritual longings? Written in John Dickson's characteristically non-technical and readable style, this book presents each of the world's major religions in its best light, carefully outlining the history, belief systems and spiritual practices of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam so that the interested 'spectator' can explore their similarities and differences. For believers, skeptics and students alike, A Spectator's Guide to World Religions provides a fair and friendly introduction to this ultimate subject.

Islam For Dummies, Malcolm Clark
2 Islam For Dummies
Malcolm Clark USA John Wiley & Sons Ltd 2003 0764555030 / 9780764555039 Soft cover New Book 
Many non-Muslims have no idea that Muslims worship the same God as Christians and Jews, and that Islam preaches compassion, charity, humility, and the brotherhood of man. And the similarities don't end there. According to Islamic teaching, Muhammad founded Islam in 610 CE after the angel Gabriel appeared to him at Mecca and told him that God had entered him among the ranks of such great biblical prophets as Abraham, Moses, and Christ. Whether you live or work alongside Muslims and want to relate to them better, or you simply want to gain a better understanding of the world's second largest religion, "Islam For Dummies" can help you make sense of this religion and its appeal. From the "Qur'an" to Ramadan, this friendly guide introduces you to the origins, practices and beliefs of Islam, including: Muhammad, the man and the legend; The Five Pillars of Wisdom; The Five Essentials beliefs of Islam; The different branches of Islam and Islamic sects; The "Qur'an" and Islamic law; Islam throughout history and its impact around the world Professor Malcolm Clark explores the roots of Islam, how it has developed over the centuries, and it's long and complex relationship with Christianity. He helps puts Islam in perspective as a major cultural and geopolitical force. And he provided helpful insights into, among other things: Muhammad, the Qur'an and the ethical teachings of Islam; Muslim worship, customs, and rituals surrounding birth, marriage, and death; Shi'ites, Sunnis, Sufis, Druze, and other important Muslim groups; and Islam in relation to Judaism and Christianity. In these troubled times, it is important that we try to understand the belief systems of others, for through understanding comes peace. "Islam For Dummies" helps you build bridges of understanding between you and your neighbors in the global village.

The Koran, Translated by Arthur J. Arberry
3 The Koran
Translated by Arthur J. Arberry UK Oxford University Press 2008 0199537321 / 9780199537327 Soft cover New Book 18.8 x 12.8 x 4.4 cm 
The Koran is a book apart, not only as Holy Scripture for Muslims, but as the supreme classic of Arabic literature. In its 114 Suras, or chapters, it comprises the total of revelations believed to have been communicated to the prophet Muhammad as a final expression of God's will and purpose for man. The revelations were received over a number of years, the first dating from AD 610, the last shortly before Muhammad's death in AD 632, and the definitive canon was established some twenty years later. The Koran is neither prose nor poetry but a unique fusion of both. In his attempt to convey the sublime rhetoric of the original, Professor Arberry has carefully studied the intricate and richly varied rhythms which - apart from the message itself - serve to explain the Koran's undeniable claim to rank among the greatest literary masterpieces of mankind. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
