Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled The Expansion of Prophetic Experience contains the table of contents, the preface and an introduction. The systematic and comprehensive nature of Abdulkarim Soroushs approach to religious reform is mirrored in his own intellectual trajectory. Abdulkarim Soroushs Neo-Rationalist project puts forward one of the most comprehensive, systematic, and balanced presentations of a reformed Islam thus far presented by an individual thinker. Soroushs aim is to introduce a balance into Muslims perception of the Prophet, the nature of the revelation and the role of the Qurʾanthus, equilibrium with respect to expectations of religion in general. Soroush has also handled with apparent ease the psychological challenge of questioning the nature of what Muslim consciousness has long come to believe to be the Word of God.

Keywords: Abdulkarim Soroush; Neo-Rationalist Islam; Qurʾan; religious reform
