9780946621217: King of the Castle: Choice and Responsibility in the Modern World (Islamic Texts Society)

This book examines closely many of the unquestioned assumptions by which we live our lives, comparing them with the beliefs that have shaped and guided human life in the past. It begins with a consideration of how secular societies attempt to possess their citizens, body and soul and how, as a consequence, the necessity of redefining human responsibility becomes an ever more urgent imperative. The book continues with a presentation of the traditional view of man as 'God's Viceroy on Earth', with an eye to its practical implications in a world that has all but forgotten, under the pressure of mass social persuasion, that man must always be free to choose his own ultimate destiny. The author's thesis is a passionate yet incisive plea for the restoration of the sacred norms of religion, as against the debilitating and falsifying aims of a profane world-view based on no more than recent scientific and technological achievements.

Review:

"This is a book of the utmost importance to anyone concerned...with the really basic questions of human life." -- Country Life

"This is an urgent piece of writing, a reading of what we are and where we are." -- The Times Literary Supplement

"This marvellous book...abounds with penetrating insights...The most remarkable quality of the book however is its courage." -- Fourth World Review
