12 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is happening in Islam is of concern to more than Muslims. The Qur'an is the prime possession of Muslims: how then, are they reading and understanding their sacred Book today? This volume, originally published in 1985, examines eight writers from India, Egypt, Iran and Senegal. Their way with the Qur'an indicates how some in Islam respond to the pressures in life and thought, associated in the West with thinkers such as Kierkegaard, Marx, Camus, Kafka, Jung, Fanon and De Chardin."--Provided by publisher

The Qurʼan and the West by Kenneth Cragg ( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For six decades Kenneth Cragg has been recognized and praised as one of the West's most gifted interpreters of Islam. In this latest work, Cragg argues that the West must put aside a "spiritual imperialism" that draws on western prescripts alien of Muslims and "learn to come within" Islam. Only then can a conversation begin that can relieve the misunderstandings and suspicion that has grown between Islam and the West - especially since 9/11." "Cragg makes clear that a misunderstanding of the tenets of a religion is a condition religious have suffered through the centuries and one to which Islam is no exception. He argues that the terrorists of 9/11 perverted the Qur'an's meaning and yet argues that fanaticism cannot be healed by being deplored or rebuked. Instead, the factors that induced it need to be resolved so that the "anxieties they shelter can be patiently allayed." The Qur'an and the West offers a means of study that reaches for a deeper knowledge of the Qur'an, engendering a new understanding of its holy teachings, and opening a means for a fruitful discourse."--BOOK JACKET

The secular experience of God by Kenneth Cragg ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How equipped are today's religions to cope with secular dilemmas, and what are the resources upon which they can draw in their efforts to respond to these dilemmas? After reviewing several of the "ironies" present in the secular/religious situation today, Kenneth Cragg focuses on culture and on sexuality as the core of cultural formation in birth, the family, and human relationships. He analyzes the shape of the religious mind over the centuries and concludes with the question: In what terms can Christian finality hold in a climate of irreligion, pluralism, and competition from other "authorities" of revelation? --From publisher's description
