    1. This book is less of an introduction to sufism than it is an argument for sufism s place in orthodox Islam At least that is what the first 2 3s are about while last third is oddly enough an argument for sufism s universalism and commonality with all religions Some interesting theology is discussed along the way but it seems only incidental to the author s purposes The book, however, lacks any substantive information on the history and practices of sufism.

    2. This is a good general introduction to Sufism There is discussion not only of its relationship with Islam, but also of its relations to Judaism and Christianity.

    3. Its introduction to sufism islamic esoterism He also speaks about Islamic exoterism and Perennial philosophy religio perennis.
