Sufi Spirituality in China: The Role of Liu Zhi – A Review

screen-shot-2017-02-13-at-10-34-56-amI recently reviewed David Lee’s, Contextualization of Sufi Spirituality in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century China: The Role of Liu Zhi (c.1662–c.1730) (Pickwick Publications, 2015) for Islam and Christian–Muslim Relations.

Here is a sneak peak:

Overall, Lee significantly contributes to the scholarship on Islam in China: first, by making valuable resources available in English and situating those Sino-Islamic texts within several intellectual contexts, and second by synthesizing and cataloging multiple strains of Chinese and English scholarship on Islam in China. These features make Contextualization of Sufi Spirituality in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century China: The Role of Liu Zhi (c.1662-c.1730) a welcomed addition to this subfield that can also serve as an accessible entry point to Islamic thought in China more broadly.
