Globalization, Ethics and Islam: The Case of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi
Ian Markham, İbrahim ÷zdemir
Ashgate Pub., 2005 - Religion - 218 pages
Said Nursi (1877-1960) was an advocate of a form of Islam strongly committed to non-violence and constructive engagement with the West and Christianity. He has six million followers - the Nursi community - primarily in Turkey. Yet many in the United States and Europe are not familiar with his important work; this book seeks to rectify that gap. In Globalization, Ethics and Islam, Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scholars reflect upon the achievement of Said Nursi and apply his thought to the complex issues of non-violence, dialogue and globalization.
