Readings: Students are expected to read widely throughout the semester. The goal should be a minimum of 1500 pages, or approximately 110 pages per week. Some readings will be assigned; others will be chosen by the student, according to each one's interests and needs, e.g. research for the papers. Browse in the library stacks, in the following areas: B 741-753 Islamic philosophy BP 1-399 Islam, in general BV 2625-2626 Missions to Muslims DS 35+ Historical, geographical, and political aspects HQ 1170 Women in Islam PJ 6000+ Arabic language and literature Don't neglect the periodicals. Glance through, at least, Islamic Horizons, a general magazine for the Muslim public in the U.S. The Qur'an: Read what you can of the Qur'an. Some sections will be assigned, or read in class; bring your copy to each class session. You will not be required to read the whole book during the course of the semester. Everyone in ministry to Muslims, however, should be able to say, "I've read it."
