Many of the great thinkers and poets in Christianity and Islam led
lives marked by personal and religious struggle. Indeed, suffering
and struggle are part of the human condition and constant themes in
philosophy, sociology and psychology. In this thought-provoking
book, acclaimed scholar Mona Siddiqui ponders how humankind finds
meaning in life during an age of uncertainty. Here, she explores
the theme of human struggle through the writings of iconic figures
such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Muhammad Ghazali, Rainer Maria Rilke
and Sayyid Qutb - people who searched for meaning in the face of
adversity. Considering a wide range of thinkers and literary
figures, her book explores how suffering and struggle force the
faithful to stretch their imagination in order to bring about
powerful and prophetic movements for change. The moral and
aesthetic impulse of their writings will also stimulate
inter-cultural and interdisciplinary conversations on the search
for meaning in an age of uncertainty.
