Religion / Christian Ministry / Discipleship
This series will explore and examine a vast literature on understudied strands in Islamic thought. The series topics include, but not limited to, Qur’an and hadith studies, classical theological and philosophical doctrines, the human knowledge, law and tradition, law and legal reforms, tradition and renewal, Salafi thought, piety movements, neo-traditionalism, neo-liberalism, neo-reformism, neo-Islamism, cultural pluralism, and liberal and ethical humanism. Additional subjects for consideration would be trends in contemporary Islamic thought such as democracy, justice, secularism, globalization, international relations, Islam and the West, and feminism. The volumes in the series would examine, historicize, and analyse Muslim intellectual responses to the various trends of Islamic thought that have been understudied in Western scholarship. This series would make an important and timely literature available to the English reader.

While the series encompasses both classical and modern Islamic thought, a special emphasis will be put on modern and contemporary Islamic reformist thought. In light of radicalism and the rise of violence in the Islamic world today, the expectations of reformist thought in Muslim societies are running high. What are the programs that qualify as reformist, what are the qualities an Islamic reformist is expected to demonstrate, and what does exactly make for Islamic reformist thinking? There are two strands of Muslim reformers in the Islamic world today: those who refer to themselves as Islamic reformers (they are out to reinterpret the Islamic tradition to make it compatible with the current age) and those who are described as reformist but claim that they are not out to reform Islam, but rather only to interpret it in an “Islamically correct” manner. To date, far too little attention has been devoted to the thought of the thinkers in both groups. The volumes in this series would examine contemporary reformist thought as well as its reception in both the Islamic world and the West.
