Islam and Authors welcomes Jonathan A. C. Brown, author of Hadith: Muhammad's Legacy in the Medieval and Modern World and . Brown's Hadith is new, comprehensive and accessible introduction to hadith- the transmitted reports about Muhammad's words and actions. The bulk of Islamic law rests upon hadith reports. With the current controversies over sharia, Brown's Hadith is extremely relevant. It explains both Western and traditional Islamic approaches to hadith, has extremely informative charts and an easy-to-read format, and covers both Sunni and Shia views of hadith.
Jonathan A. C . Brown is assistant professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Washington. Jason van Boom is Director of Development and Marketing at ICCNC.
"A must read and a great read. The combination of impeccable, critical scholarship with a story teller's style has produced an introductory volume that is both substantive and remarkably engaging." --John L. Esposito, Founding Director of the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, and Editor of The Oxford Dictionary of Islam.
