Description
Summary:Contemporary Muslims face a challenge: how should they define the relationship between normative Islamic jurisprudence - worked out by classical jurists over the course of centuries - and the reality that confronts them in their everyday lives. They have to reckon with how religion can regulate and serve the needs of a changing community. Is there a need for reformation in Islam? If so, where should it begin and how should it proceed? So far, these challenging questions have received little attention from Western scholars. 'Shi'ism Revisited' will address this gap.
