    Abstract : "Is belief in God justified? This question has been examined numerous times, but never from the angle taken by this book: that of the 'reflective Muslim'. The reflective Muslim describes a person of Islamic faith who acknowledges that people of other religious and non-religious persuasions are as concerned with seeking truth and avoiding error as they themselves are. This work begins with the assumption of religious ambiguity - i.e., that the total relevant evidence neither shows belief in God to be true nor false. Accordingly, the central question of this work is whether a person can be entitled to hold and act on their belief in God when there is religious ambiguity? The author contends that belief in God can be justified under the condition of religious ambiguity, and he defends this view by employing an account of faith inspired by the pioneering work of the American intellectual, William James."--Publisher's website
