Rahman confronts today's perception of Islamic fundamentalism. Drawing from medieval sources and such great thinkers as al-Ghazali and Ibn Taymiyya, he reasserts Islam as a dynamic faith whose fundamentalist origins lie not in the unchanging face of tradition, but in reinterpretation, innovation and reform. Citing early sects, Islamic law, Sufism and political developments, Rahman reclassifies twentieth-century Islam as 'neo-fundamentalist', and holds out change and renewal as the path back to the true spirit of the faith.
