The Sufi Question

I know many UUs are fascinated by Sufi- Islamic mysticism- and my headline is the cover story of this month's Smithsonian Magazine . The teaser on the inside says, "Pakistan's Sufis Preach Faith and Ecstasy
The believers in Islamic mysticism embrace a personal approach to their faith and a different outlook on how to run their country’s government"
Definitely worth a read!

Check Stephen Schwartz from a few years ago in the Weekly Standard and also his book here.

There is an interesting comment over at Amazon and it's worth noting on anything oriental we occidentals join.
