Summary: No previous full-scale study has been undertaken so far to study the polemical writings of the Muslim reformist Mu�hammad Rash�id Ri�d�a (1865-1935) and his associates in his well-known journal al-Man�ar (The Lighthouse). The book focuses on the dynamics of Muslim understanding of Christianity during the late 19th and the early 20th century in the light of al-Man�ar's sources of knowledge, and its answers to the social, political and theological aspects of missionary movements in the Muslim World of Ri�d�a's age. The basis of the analysis encompasses the voluminous publications by Ri�d�a and other Man�arists in his journal. Besides, it makes use of newly-discovered materials, including Ri�d�a's private papers, and some other remaining personal archives of some of his associates.
