A Wind in the House of Islam investigates the phenomenon of millions of Muslims who are turning to faith in Jesus Christ today. Over the course of Islamic history tens of millions of Christians were absorbed into the House of Islam. But what about the opposite? Have there ever been movements of Muslim communities who voluntarily turned to Jesus Christ and were baptized? The first 13 centuries of Islam's history saw only three movements numbering at least a thousand Muslims turning to Christianity, apart from those that were coerced through wars, Crusades and Inquisitions. Today, the story is changing. Over the past two decades there have been 69 additional movements of Muslims to Christ scattered across the Muslim world from West Africa to Indonesia. In an unprecedented global survey, Dr. David Garrison, Ph.D. University of Chicago, traveled a quarter-million miles throughout the House of Islam to find out why and how this is happening today. His research took him into every corner of the Muslim world where he gathered more than a thousand interviews of Muslim-background followers of Jesus Christ. His core question: What did God use to bring you to faith in Jesus Christ? A Wind in the House of Islam reveals their stories, and David Garrison's journey through all nine Rooms in the House of Islam, where he discovered that the Wind of God's Spirit is blowing through every one of them. A Wind in the House of Islam is a 328-page book written in an engaging style, but also includes a glossary of Islamic terms, a bibliography for further reading, endnotes, 11 maps with data tables of Muslim populations, 46 photographs, and excerpts from more than a thousand interviews. Each of the book's 15 chapters conclude with discussion questions to facilitate small group dialogue and discovery. Learn more about the book at: www.WindintheHouse.org

En «Buscando a Alá, encontrando a Jesús», Nabeel Qureshi, quien fuera devoto musulmán, describe su dramático peregrinar del Islam al cristianismo, y con él, todas las amistades, investigaciones, sueños y visiones que fue encontrando por el camino.Muchos occidentales están confundidos acerca del Islam, les tienen algo de temor a los musulmanes, o sencillamente no están informados acerca de la relación que existe entre la fe islámica y la cristiana. A su vez, a muchos musulmanes, una serie de barreras culturales, intelectuales y teológicas les impiden comprender, o incluso escuchar correctamente, el evangelio de Jesucristo.A lo largo de su historia, Qureshi nos presenta una apologética compasiva, pero poderosa a favor del cristianismo sobre el Islam, enfatizando las relaciones y el amor. Los apéndices aportados por eruditos y expertos populares les dan más información a los musulmanes para que la analicen, y a los cristianos para que la consulten en sus discusiones espirituales con sus amigos musulmanes.Fascinante como relato y útil como recurso apologético, «Buscando a Alá, encontrando a Jesús», les presenta a los lectores una poderosa historia sobre el choque entre el Islam y el cristianismo dentro del corazón de un hombre, y sobre la paz que terminó hallando en Jesús.

Imagine flying into Iran to rescue the American embassy employees being held hostage. What would it be like to be a pilot of a military refueling aircraft, loaded with jet fuel and passengers, accelerating to takeoff speed, then having to do a high-speed abort because of an aircraft malfunction. Put yourself in an aircraft that crashes onto a remote airstrip during a blizzard. How would you react to being a young man who has it all, being a military pilot and newly married, but you learn that you have leukemia. You are then told about a new medical procedure called a bone marrow transplant but, half the people who have tried that have died. What would it be like to be a member of the United States military, training to defend your nation against the Soviet Empire during the Cold War, when your government tells you that you are going on a mission to establish Christian organizations in the Soviet military. These are all real-world stories from graduates of the Class of 74 of the United States Air Force Academy. Read, laugh, cry, learn and be inspired."

Los versos satánicos es la novela más célebre, iconoclasta y polémica de Salman Rushdie. Una referencia ineludible de la literatura de nuestro tiempo. Un avión secuestrado estalla a gran altura sobre el canal de la Mancha. Dos supervivientes caen al mar: Gibrel Farishta, un legendario galán cinematográfico, y Saladin Chamcha, el hombre de las mil voces, autodidacta y anglófilo furibundo. Consiguen llegar a una playa inglesa y notan unos extraños cambios: uno ha adquirido una aureola y el otro ve con horror cómo crece el vello de sus piernas, los pies se le convierten en cascos y las sienes se abultan...

This book focuses on the Christian Dani of West Papua, providing a social and ethnographic history of the most important indigenous population in the troubled province. It presents a fascinating overview of the Dani’s conversion to Christianity, examining the social, religious and political uses to which they have put their new religion.

Denuncia apasionada de la locura que incita a los hombres a matarse entre sí en el nombre de una etnia, lengua o religión, ¿Identidades asesinas¿ es, a la vez, una tentativa de comprender por qué en la historia de la humanidad la afirmación del uno ha significado siempre la negación del otro. Desde su condición de hombre situado entre Oriente y Occidente que gravita sobre toda su obra, ya sea literaria ¿como en ¿León el Africano¿ o ¿Las escalas de Levante¿¿, o histórica ¿como en ¿Las Cruzadas vistas por los árabes¿¿, cuando se le pregunta a Amin Maalouf si se siente más libanés o más francés, responde que por igual: «Lo que me hace ser yo mismo y no otro ¿escribe¿ es que estoy a caballo entre dos países, entre dos o tres lenguas, entre varias tradiciones culturales. Ésa es mi identidad».

Islamic ideas about women and their role in society spark considerable debate both in the Western world and in the Islamic world itself. Despite the popular attention surrounding Middle Eastern attitudes toward women, there has been little systematic study of the statements regarding women in the Qur'an. Stowasser fills the void with this study on the women of Islamic sacred history. By telling their stories in Qur'an and interpretation, she introduces Islamic doctrine and its past and present socio-economic and political applications. Stowasser establishes the link between the female figure as cultural symbol, and Islamic self-perceptions from the beginning to the present time.

In his probing study of the role of death rites in the making of Islamic society, Leor Halevi imaginatively plays prescriptive texts against material culture and advances new ways of interpreting highly contested sources. His original research reveals that religious scholars of the early Islamic period produced codes of funerary law not only to define the handling of a Muslim corpse but also to transform everyday urban practices. Relying on oral traditions, these scholars established new social patterns in the cities of Arabia, Mesopotamia, and the eastern Mediterranean. They distinguished Islamic rites from Christian, Jewish, and Zoroastrian rites and changed the way men and women interacted publicly and privately. In each chapter Halevi explores a different layer of human interaction, following the movement of the corpse from the deathbed to the grave. In the process he analyzes the real and imaginary relationships between husbands and wives, prayer leaders and mourners, and even dreamers and the dead. He describes how Muslims wailed for the deceased, prepared corpses for burial, marched in funerary processions, and prayed for the dead, highlighting the specific economic and political factors involved in these rituals as well as key religious and sexual divisions. Offering a unique perspective on the making of Islamic social and religious ideals during this early period, Halevi forges a fascinating link between the development of funerary rites and the efforts of an emerging religion to carve out its own, distinct identity. Muhammad's Grave is a groundbreaking history of the rise of Islam and the roots of contemporary Muslim attitudes toward the body and society.

The Ghazi Sultans and the Frontiers of Islam

The Ghazi Sultans were frontier holy-warrior kings of late medieval and early modern Islamic history. This book is a comparative study of three particular Ghazis in the Muslim world at that time, demonstrating the extent to which these men were influenced by the actions and writings of their predecessors in shaping strategy and the way in which they saw themselves. Using a broad range of Persian, Arabic and Turkish texts, the author offers new findings in the history of memory and self-fashioning, demonstrating thereby the value of intertextual approaches to historical and literary studies. The three main themes explored include the formation of the ideal of the Ghazi king in the eleventh century, the imitation thereof in fifteenth and early sixteenth century Anatolia and India, and the process of transmission of the relevant texts. By focusing on the philosophical questions of ‘becoming’ and ‘modelling’, Anooshahr has sought alternatives to historiographic approaches that only find facts, ideology, and legitimization in these texts. This book will be of interest to scholars specialising in Medieval and early modern Islamic history, Islamic literature, and the history of religion.
