Das biblische Danielbuch selbst formuliert die Erwartung: ,,viele werden es durchforschen ..." (Dan 12,4 Lutherübersetzung). Die Geschichte der Danielauslegung in Judentum, Christentum und Islam war im August 2006 in Berlin Gegenstand eines wissenschaftlichen Symposiums, dessen Tagungsbeiträge hier vorgelegt werden. Das Themenspektrum beginnt bei dem biblischen Danielbuch selbst und reicht dann über die Danielrezeption im hellenistischen Judentum, im Markusevangelium und in der Alten Kirche (Hippolyt, Ephraem der Syrer, Hieronymus, Theodoret) über Vertreter des Mittelalters (mittelalterliche islamische Literatur, Abravanel, Nikolaus von Lyra) und der Reformationszeit (Luther, Müntzer, Melanchthon, Calvin) bis hin zu Isaac Newton. Texte und Kunstwerke aus allen drei monotheistischen Weltreligionen werden erörtert. Die Aufsätze bilden Einzelstudien, denen in der Regel eine Quelle zugrunde liegt, die entweder aufgrund ihrer Exemplarizität für eine Epoche oder aufgrund ihrer Bedeutung als einer wichtigen Station oder eines Wendepunktes in der Rezeptionsgeschichte ausgewählt wurde. Da bei den meisten behandelten Autoren ihre Danielrezeption zu einem fortlaufenden Kommentar gerinnt, liegt ein besonderes Augenmerk auf der Gattungsgeschichte des biblischen Kommentars.

Modernist Islam was a major intellectual current in the Muslim world during the 19th and 20th centuries. Proponents of this movement typically believed that it was not only possible but imperative to show how "modern" values and institutions could be reconciled with authentically Islamic ideals. This sourcebook brings together a broad range of writings on modernist Islam from across the Muslim world. It makes available for the first time in English the writings of many of the activists and intellectuals who made up the early modernist Islamic movement. Charles Kurzman and a team of section editors, each specializing in a different region of the Islamic world, have assembled, translated, and annotated the work of the most important of these figures. With the publication of this volume, an English-speaking audience will have wider access to the literature of modernist Islam than did the makers of the movement themselves.

The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam is a long-awaited translation of Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi's well-known Arabic work, Al-Halal Al-Haram Fil-Islam. Over the years since ite first publication in 1960, this volume has enjoyed a huge readership in the Arabic speaking world and is now in its 20th edition. It came to dispel the ambiguities surrounding the honorable Shari'ah, and to fulfill the essential needs of the Muslims in this age. It clarifies the Halal (Lawful) and why it is Halal, and the Haram (Prohibited) and why it is Haram, referring to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace be on him). It answers all the questions which may face the Muslims today, and refutes the ambiguities and lies about Islam. In a very simple way, Al-Halal Al-Haram Fil-Islam delves into the authentic references in Islamic jurisprudence and fiqh. It therefrom extracts judgments of interest to contemporary Muslims in the areas of worship, business dealings, marriage and divorce, food and drink, dress and ornaments, patterns of behavior, individual and group relations, family and social ethics, habits and social customs. Referring to authentic texts, it clarifies that "Permission is the rule in everything, unless it is otherwise specified in matters that adversely affect individuals or groups." It also clarifies that "Allah is the only authority who has the right to legislate for the lawful and the prohibited."

Designed for general readers with little or no knowledge of Islam, this superb Oxford Dictionary provides more than 2,000 vividly written, up-to-date, and authoritative entries organized in an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format. The Dictionary focuses primarily on the 19th and 20th centuries, stressing topics of most interest to Westerners. What emerges is a highly informative look at the religious, political, and social spheres of the modern Islamic world. Naturally, readers will find many entries on topics of intense current interest, such as terrorism and the Taliban, Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida, the PLO and HAMAS. But the coverage goes well beyond recent headlines. There are biographical profiles, ranging from Naguib Mahfouz (the Nobel Prize winner from Egypt) to Malcolm X, including political leaders, influential thinkers, poets, scientists, and writers. Other entries cover major political movements, militant groups, and religious sects as well as terms from Islamic law, culture, and religion, key historical events, and important landmarks (such as Mecca and Medina). A series of entries looks at Islam in individual nations, such as Afghanistan, the West Bank and Gaza, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the United States, and there are discussions of Islamic views on such issues as abortion, birth control, the Internet, the Rushdie Affair, and the theory of evolution. Whether we are listening to the evening news, browsing through the op-ed pages, or reading a book on current events, references to Muslims and the Islamic world appear at every turn. The Oxford Dictionary of Islam offers a wealth of information for anyone curious about this burgeoning and increasingly important world religion.
