The Leaves of the Tree

H.B. Dehqani-Tafti

In this collection we find a range of subjects as varied as the leaves of a tree. Included are two lectures by Dr. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury delivered at Al Azhar University, Cairo and the Islamic University of Pakistan. Despite this distinguished background as Professor of Divinity at Oxford, these addresses are accessible explanations of Christian faith. Also included, is a translation of an article by Dr. Cragg on Islam today, and another by M. Zarnegar on the adoption of the Crescent as a sign of victory after the conquest of Constantinople. The breadth of this anthology is apparent in its inclusion of sayings, poems, prayers and meditations. There is material to guide worship, and sayings on death. There is also room for some humorous poems.
