Duncan Black MacDonald (1863-1943) was professor of Semitic languages at Hartford Theological Seminary. His career did much to further the study of Arabic literature in the United States and to promote Christian-Muslim dialogue. A Scot, he studied at the University of Glasgow. His publications include works on Arabic literature and philosophy, Muslim faith, life and culture, as well as various topics concerning the Hebrew Bible.
Al-Ghazzali’s contributions to Muslim theology cannot be overestimated and Professor MacDonald brings to life the thoughts and experiences of this medieval theologian, philosopher, and mystic, with special attention to his religious experiences and opinions.
