Wisdom's Journey: Living the Spirit of Islam in the Modern World (Library of Perennial Philosophy) by John Herlihy



American convert John Ahmed Herlihy provides his personal answer and takes readers on a journey to the heart of Islam, the fastest growing religion in the world. Weaving details of Islam's central beliefs and practices-its Five Pillars-with intimate autobiographical details of his more than thirty years in the religion, Herlihy presents readers with an insightful glimpse into a religion that remains so often misunderstood. The Perennial Philosophy Series In the beginning of the twentieth century, a school of thought arose which has focused on the enunciation and explanation of the Perennial Philosophy. Deeply rooted in the sense of the sacred, the writings of its leading exponents establish an indispensable foundation for understanding the timeless Truth and spiritual practices which live in the heart of all religions.

Great reading. True to its title, touches not only the heart but the very depth of the soul. Gives a great insight about the writer himself.

"Soon We shall show them Our signs on the horizons of the earth and within their own souls, until it becomes clear to them that this is the Truth" - Quran

Wisdom's Journey is a wayfarer's account of practicing what has been regarded as the world's fastest growing religion--Islam--which claims over a billion adherents and regrettably is all-too-often misunderstood in the West, especially with the widespread xenophobic phenomena of "Islamophobia." John Herlihy provides the reader with an in-depth portrayal of this faith and how one can uncompromisingly practice traditional religion, without being an "extremist" or "fundamentalist," in the midst of the modern world that is vehemently anti-spiritual. This book will also be of value to those who are still undecided about what spiritual path to embark upon as well as those who are still of "two minds" about how unwavering one needs to be about spiritual life. Herlihy intertwines the rudiments of Islam's central way of life--its Five Pillars--with personal accounts of the author's living three decades in this Abrahamic faith which gives the book the coloring of a pilgrims journal, containing many insightful exchanges among fellow travelers, sacred landscapes and lucid moments--directing the reader toward the essence of Islam.

This new book will make a significant contribution to offset a host of literature on Islam that obscures and deceives rather than elucidates and reveals its heart as this hook does. This text underscores many facets of the spiritual path that are either overlooked or not fully understood. The author aptly integrates the exoteric dimensions of Islam in the light at the esoteric to present this spiritual tradition in its fullness. Wisdom's Journey is recommended for all those who long to know more about authentic Islam and its practices as well as those already living within this faith. We hope that this work, like the other writings offered by the traditionalist or perennialist authors, will assist in clarifying the numerous misconceptions about Islam and its practitioners.
