By Reynold A. Nicholson, 148 Pages, Paperback.

In this compact volume, Reynold A. Nicholson, a renowned Islamic scholar, combines his research into Sufi doctrine and history with a rich account of the spiritual and metaphysical significance of Sufism as a living tradition. In an original discussion, unlike anything that has appeared in the past, the author places special accent on the pertinence of Sufi teachings to the modern world. Thus, the book answers ideally the need for a lucid, succinct presentation of the principal aspects of Sufism and its relevance to the apparent spiritual poverty of the contemporary world.
