Second, Islam challenges Church Christianity. And third, Islam poses the challenge Brown takes up as a major theme - Brown's challenge to the reader - to make one's life a work of art. The Challenge of Islam is a recent ed set of seven transcribed lectures originally delivered at Tufts in 1981, and one previously unpublished essay, the written text of a conference paper. Throughout the work Brown reframes and reinforces the esoteric traditions of Ruzbihan, Suhrawardi, Ibn & and their rich testimonies of epiphany and beauty.

The Prophetic Tradition: The Challenge of Islam is an enlightening set of lectures given by Norman O. Brown during the 1980s, exploring a wide-ranging array of topics concerning Islam. Throughout these lectures, which are remarkably pertinent today, Brown seeks to educate the reader on misunderstood areas of Islam, including the split between the Sunni and Shi’ite sects and Islam’s exemplification of the broad themes of art and imagination in human life. The author’s world-historical perspective of religion and tradition gives readers a crucial alternative to the divisive clash of civilizations view that paints Islam as at odds with the West.
