Islam & Women Hagar's Heritage PB by Moyra Dale
In a field where the majority of publications on Islam are by men and about menÊs experience of Islam, this book offers a new perspective on Islam through the world of women. Drawing on rich personal experience, Islamic texts, culture and history, the author explores faith, cultural themes and everyday life for Muslim women.
"This book should be compulsory reading for men who want to understand contemporary Islamic cultures. It also contains great riches for women who are part of those cultures or who are relating with people of those cultures. And for people who want to think about the relationship between scripture, faith and culture. And for those who would like some fresh insights into the Bible." Dr Ida Glaser, International Academic Coordinator and Founding fellow of the Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies, Oxford.
