The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Islamic Spirituality has just been published. Congratulations to the editors Bruce B. Lawrence and Vincent J. Cornell for bringing this volume (and team of contributors) together:

“The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Islamic Spirituality is an authoritative reference work comprising twenty-eight scholarly essays that explore the expressive and performative dimensions of Islamic spirituality. Edited by two of its most prominent scholars, and bringing together a stellar cast of contributors, this wide-ranging volume covers religious practices, sacred texts, history and places, gender, music, poetry, the visual arts, and politics.”

I was pleased to contribute a chapter on ‘Islamic Spirituality and the Internet’ to the book.

Here’s table of Contents info for Vincent Cornell & Bruce Lawrence, “Islamic Spirituality” (Wiley-Blackwell), which I have now received. It’s a substantial volume (size and price); there is also an eBook version available. Check the site for prices (which may vary across markets). .
