Modern civilization, which has created a distorted and exploitative cycle of relations among people, has reached a sort of dead end. Islamic civilization, together with other civilizations, might offer alternative discourses for the future of our world. For these reasons, we need a more comprehensive understanding of Islam. This book contains extremely useful and rare accounts on Islam contributed by Muslims in Indonesia, which is the most populous Muslim nation in the world.

Indonesia is proud of diverse cultural heritage in areas including religion. Islam in Indonesia is one such well-spring of wisdom. This book proves it. The present volume also presents a unique sociological analysis of “the gap” within umat by Dr Kato.

Mohamad. Sobary, Writer and Man of Culture

The diversity of convictions in the world’s largest Islamic country is well known. But rarely has it been captured in one book, and in the words of religious leaders themselves. Leading Islamic fundamentalists argue that today’s social decadence requires a new political order, with its own pure laws. Not gender emancipation but the welfare of the whole Islamic community should be central. Leading liberals, meanwhile, make the case for secularisation, women’s emancipation, a jihad of peace, and even acceptance of Muslim homosexuality. An insightful editorial introduction makes this an excellent reader on Indonesian Islam.
