heavy going, incoherent, but once read a couple of times, with constant reference to the Quran and Hadith an amazing book, broadening the readers horizon and deeper knoledge of Quranic content and Islam. The translator/ Editor I felt was a tad too critical of Ibn Al Arabi' explanations, ideas and philosophy - but tried hard to explain each chapter in the introduction. Best read firstly without reference to the editors introduction to the various chapters - all relating the 'wisdom' according to a particular prophet, ie. Jesus. Extensive quotes all gathered from Quran and 'sahih' Hadith and footnoted. A very profound book.
