5.0 out of 5 stars Author explains a number of complex ideas in layman terms, 22 Feb. 2005

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Remembering God: Reflections on Islam (Paperback)
One of the best theology books I've ever read!
Addresses a number of complex and controversial concepts (such as Devine pre-ordainment, Women's roles, definition and relationship with God)
Draws thought provoking comparisons between the Islamic view of God and those of Secularism, Christianity, Judaism and other faiths
Highly recommended to those with an interest in understanding the Islamic faith from an objective point of view, the author of the book is a former British diplomat, and captures many of the Subtleties of the faith in this book

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book that really helps appreciate the Author, 8 July 2009
By 
Uwais Namaji "namazi" (uk) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Remembering God: Reflections on Islam (Paperback)
Having read Islam and the Destiny of Man, a third person introduction to Islam, I was intriuged in trying to understand who the author hiding behind such a genious book was.

Here's a book that allows just that. This is a book that lets you probe into the author's mind and lets you assess his thoughts more directly.

The title 'remembering God' is craftly chosen as writing on Halal and Haram is also part of remembering God. The book is a collection of the author's essays on numerous topics, written in his inimitable style characterised by its flawless rhetoric.

This book is recommended to people with a general interest in Islam, British Islam/Muslims, Sufism and Islamic perrenialism.

As Nasr points out in the foreword, here is a man at the heights of Islamic and Western tradition.

Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars UN-PUT-DOWN-ABLE, 31 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Remembering God: Reflections on Islam (Paperback)
Bored out of my wits I reluctantly picked up this book off my father's shelf, and havent been able to put it down since. It has totally blown me away. The author is obviously someone of high intelligence and profound wit, and I would LOVE to have his company at my dinner table one evening. The way he approaches any topic or issue is so refreshing and to-the-point as to immediately cause a huge paradigm shift. He talks about issues that are critical to ponder over but almost no one is reflecting upon them, swept up as most of us are by the tidal wave of popular culture and the never-ending rat race. While the rest of us are on a fast treadmill, jogging like mad and getting nowhere, Gai Eaton is already past the finish line and looking back with a different perspective. If there is only one book you ever read in your whole life, make it this one.
