Nonviolence and Islamic Imperatives
REVIEWS, 1 May 2017
Jørgen Johansen – TRANSCEND Media Service
Nonviolence and Islamic Imperatives is a timely book that provides a valuable perspective to the ongoing dialogue on Islam, peace, and Islamophobia today.
Chaiwat Satha-Anand offers his expertise as a peace researcher to inform readers on the history and present application of Islamic nonviolent movements, through contextual analysis of sacred texts, as well as, current examples of Islamic nonviolence in action. This perspective is vital to counter the false perception of violence in Islam.
Nonviolence and Islamic Imperatives is highly relevant and critical to continuing a crucial dialogue on the subject matter.
Submitted by Jørgen Johansen, a nonviolence author/activist, editor of Irene Publishing, and a member of the TRANSCEND Network from Norway.
