Publisher's Summary

The Way of the Sufi presents an unparalleled cross-section of material from Sufi schools, Sufi teachings, and classical writings as a basic course of Sufi study. The author begins with the outward aspects of the teaching most likely to puzzle the student coming fresh to the subject. He considers various attitudes to Sufi ideas and evidence of their absorption into medieval Christianity, Hinduism, Jewish mysticism, and modern philosophical teachings. The greater part of the book illuminates aspects of Sufi activity and practice relevant to the contemporary world.

So much to ponder!

I read this book soon after it came out and thought I knew it, but listening gave me a new slant. The narrator is a delight to listen to and my attention could be given to the words spoken rather than the page and those print marks whose interpretation sometimes seems transparent, at others the whole mechanism of reading gets in the way of understanding.
