Full Description: In this work, here presented in a complete English translation for the first time, the problem of knowing God is confronted in an original and stimulating way. Taking up the Prophet's teaching that 'Ninety-nine Beautiful Names' are truly predicated of God, the author explores the meaning and resonance of each of theses divine names, and reveals the functions they perform both in cosmos and in the soul of the spiritual adept. Although some of the book is rigorously analytical (the first chapter on predication is of direct relevance to present-day philosophical controversies), the author never fails to attract the reader with his profound mystical and ethical insights, which, conveyed in his sincere and straightforward idiom, have made of this book one of the perennial classics of Muslims thought, popular among Muslims to this day. Aby Hamid al-Ghazali (1058-1111), theologian, logician, jurist and mystic, was born and died at the town of Thus in Central Asia, but spent much of his life lecturing at Baghdad, or leading the life of a wandering dervish. Because of his success in revealing the compatibility of the outward forms of religion with the inner experiences of the Sufi tradition, he is commonly regarded as the 'renewer' of the fifth Muslim century, and the most influential thinker of mediaeval Islam. David Burrel is Theodore M. Hesburgh Professor of Philosophy and Theology at the University of Notre Dame (USA). Nazih Daher is Chairman of the Department of Asian and African Languages at the Foreign Service Institute of the United States Department of State.
