Islam in Crisis
A world religion between radicalization and quiet retreat
Islam seems confident of expanding. The opposite is the case. Religious scholar Michael Blume explains this scenario as a symptom of a deep worldwide crisis in Islam.
Blume refers to massive secularization processes in the Islamic world. He explains what led the previously advanced culture to plunge into crises and wars. The lasting educational crisis in Islamic civilization commenced in the 15th century. As a matter of fact, many Arabic-Islamic states only survive through the sale of oil which stifles democratic developments. In the absence of a coherent explanation for the decline, numerous Muslims adopt conspiracy myths from the west and so encourage further acts of terrorist violence.
This book offers a chance of better understanding the crisis in Islam and the conflict between cultures and to arrive at new solutions together.
