A devout Muslim who strongly believed in peacefully coexisting with the West, Nursi inspired a faith movement that has played a vital role in the revival of Islam in Turkey and now numbers several million followers worldwide. While Nursi s ideas have been afforded considerable analysis, this book is the first to situate these ideas and his related activities in their historical contexts.
