About this book

This book examines the competing regimes of law and religion an offers a multidisciplinary approach to demonstrate the global scope of their influence. It argues that the tension between these two institutions results from their disagreements about the kinds of rule that should govern human life and society, and from where they should be derived.

Reviews

“This collection of essays … is one of the latest scholarly attempts to grapple with the questions arising from recent events and the trends that highlight the perennial issues of the seemingly competing regimes of the rule of God and the rule of modern civil law. … The book overall offers to readers a useful … contribution toward a liberal cosmopolitan perspective on the relationship of religious conviction and the liberal political order.” (Stephen Wolfe, Journal of Church and State, Vol. 58 (3), 2016)



"Conference proceedings rarely make good books, but this is the happy exception. Ilesanmi and his colleagues have brought together a scintillating set of papers that focus, for the most part, on those areas of actual and potential conflict between shari'a and the demands of liberal democracy. This is a rich interdisciplinary collection that is sure to surprise and illuminate all sides." - G. Scott Davis, Lewis T. Booker Professor of Religion and Ethics, University of Richmond, USA
