Sabine Schmidtke, ed., The Oxford Handbook of Islamic Theology

Renard, John; Renard, John

Not so long ago, the notion that the Islamic faith (not unlike the Jewish) is more a matter of orthopraxy than orthodoxy had attained the stature of a bromide. In recent years that view has begun to face substantial challenges. It has been for too long a given, even among educated Muslims, that Muslims “don’t do theology,” but that characterization is arguably no more applicable to “all” Muslims than it is to “all” Christians. The amply proportioned Oxford Handbook of Islamic Theology offers a virtually encyclopedic overview of solid evidence for the overdue demise of such misperceptions.
