I have recently had the good news that my proposal for a second book was passed at the Edinburgh University Press ‘Press Committee’. I am writing a contemporary theological work drawing on the Maturidi tradition and engaging with modern philosophy and theology (including Christian thinkers).
This book will dig deeper into some of the underlying questions raised by The Qur’an and the Just Society in terms of the nature of God, His attributes and relationship to humanity and seek to frame them in contemporary modes of thought. I therefore see the second book both as a continuation of the first, and as laying the foundation for further enquiries into ethics, hermeneutics and more.
Why stick with Edinburgh? I found the process of publishing with them both enjoyable and supportive and am very happy with the quality of the finished book. Even better, Edinburgh have welcomed the suggestion of writing a series of interconnected books.
