A book to be treasured, Saracen Chivalry guides you through the noble traditions of medieval Sufi chivalry. It evokes in everyone who reads it a desire to be just and righteous and to follow in the footsteps of the knights of yore.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0930872932, Hardcover)

Saracen Chivalry explores the space between Arthurian romance and the ethics and spirituality of Sufism. Framed as a medieval treatise penned by a fabled African queen, the book articulates a vision of life centered on the virtues of wisdom, courage, temperance, and generosity, illustrating these virtues with scriptural verses, prophetic sayings, sage maxims, and traditional legends and lore.
