"This work stands on complex contributions of thought intersecting the faith of Muslim writers with other non-Muslim authors in a few secular theses, each from their own perspective. Amongst several distinguished thinkers, the book focuses closely on the Sudanese martyrs of thought, the spiritual philosopher Mahmoud Mohamed Taha and the socialist scholar 'Abd al-Khaliq Mahgoub, both popular political leaders who advanced religious and secular thinking in the Sudanese society, in particular, and the Arab and African regions, in general. ...This work adopted a general meaning of secularism to allow understanding worldly, as well as religious concepts of thought...regarding complex inter-related topics by the analysis and induction of facts and themes, irrespective of consensual or differential ideologies of faith, to lay down the meanings and to clarify implications." -from the Editor's "Preface"
