DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Avoiding the traps of sensational political exposes and specialized scholarly Orientalism, Carl Ernst introduces readers to the profound spiritual resources of Islam while clarifying diversity and debate within the tradition. Framing his argument in terms of religious studies, Ernst describes how Protestant definitions of religion and anti-Muslim prejudice have affected views of Islam in Europe and America. He also covers the contemporary importance of Islam in both its traditional settings and its new locations and provides a context for understanding extremist movements like fundamentalism. He concludes with an overview of critical debates on important contemporary issues such as gender and veiling, state politics, and science and religion.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This study explores different understandings of Muhammad in an attempt to understand why the Prophet's name, memory and example are universally revered by Muslims - for whom Muhammed represents the highest human idea. It examines the sources available to us in reconstructing his biography and questions their reliability. What similarities and differences arise from different starting points? It summarizes traditional Muslim views, more radical Muslim feminist critiques, and a range of non-Muslim approaches. The extreme scepticism of Patricia Crone and Michael Cook is contrasted with the work of W.M.Watt. Two chapters survey non-Muslim accounts of the Prophet Radically different appraisals are based on identical data. But Muhammad has also meant different things to different Muslims - Sunni, Shi'a, Sufi, Wahhabi, and modernist. This diversity is explored and material in this section enhances the book's usefulness as a guide to the development of theological and political discourse in Islam. The conclusion contains detailed discussion of the Salman Rushdie affair and suggests a way for-

Editor: Scholastic Teaching Resources

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In Cultivating Genius, Dr. Gholdy E. Muhammad presents a four-layered equity framework--one that is grounded in history and restores excellence in literacy education. This framework, which she names, Historically Responsive Literacy, was derived from the study of literacy development within 19th-century Black literacy societies. The framework is essential and universal for all students, especially youth of color, who traditionally have been marginalized in learning standards, school policies, and classroom practices. The equity framework will help educators teach and lead toward the following learning goals or pursuits: Identity Development--Helping youth to make sense of themselves and others Skill Development-- Developing proficiencies across the academic disciplines Intellectual Development--Gaining knowledge and becoming smarter Criticality--Learning and developing the ability to read texts (including print and social contexts) to understand power, equity, and anti-oppression When these four learning pursuits are taught together--through the Historically Responsive Literacy Framework, all students receive profound opportunities for personal, intellectual, and academic success. Muhammad provides probing, self-reflective questions for teachers, leaders, and teacher educators as well as sample culturally and historically responsive sample plans and text sets across grades and content areas. In this book, Muhammad presents practical approaches to cultivate the genius in students and within teachers.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This work attempts to recapture the fluid relationship between ethics and such institutions as faith, politics and literary art not seen, according to the author, since the time of Muhammad. By exploring the narrative that Muhammad employs in the Qur'an, the author works to reestablish the spiritually and politically desiccated relationship and prove that if today's Arab-Muslims still deem him the ethico-political and religio-artistic model to emulate, as he has been in the past, it is because he relates art to life.
