Read the full review below.

Frager, Robert. Sufi Talks: Teachings of an American Sufi Sheikh. Quest. Jul. 2012. c.296p. bibliog. index. ISBN 9780835608930. pap. $19.95. REL
Frager (Institute of Transpersonal Psychology; Essential Sufism) comes to writing about spirituality with a fascinating double heritage as a psychologist and a Sufi teacher and author. There is always some dispute about the meaning of Sufi, sometimes called the mystical dimension of Islam, but the reader will find in this book a collection of “sohbets” (informal talks) that honor the Sufi way, but express a conventionally Islamic approach to theology and spirituality. VERDICT Frager’s book gives voice to the Islam of devotion, peace, compassion, and service; an excellent introduction to Islamic modes of thought for the general reader.


Sufi Talks is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and IndieBound.
