Review of Interpreting Islam in China – Reading Religion

New review of Interpreting Islam in China: Pilgrimage, Scripture, and Language in the Han Kitab published with the American Academy of Religion’s Reading Religion by Gang Li.

Petersen contributes to the growing interest in the studies of the Han Kitab tradition with his new approach of historical hermeneutics, which enlarges and deepens our understanding of both the individual Muslim authors and the Han Kitab as a discursive tradition. Those who are interested in this Sino-Muslim tradition will definitely find it beneficial in rethinking and redefining the key categories in their own research. Additionally, his theoretical, as well as methodological, contributions will also encourage future academic investigations into other themes in the Han Kitab tradition and inspire approaches applied in the analysis of other Muslim communities.
