          Abstract

          Celebrates the life and work of one of the most famous of all Western scholars of Islam

          • Includes unpublished writings of W. Montgomery Watt: his diary and ‘The Testament of a Search’

          • Discusses different aspects of W. Montgomery Watt’s career and his outstanding achievements

          • Highlights the core views held by W. Montgomery Watt, as both a scholar of Islamic studies and a minister of the church

          This commemorative volume discusses aspects of the life and work of the internationally famous scholar Professor W. Montgomery Watt (1909–2006). His writings on Islam and on Muslim–Christian relations gained him great prestige and respect, not only in the West but also – and perhaps more significantly – right across the Muslim world.

          The book includes contributions by Professor Carole Hillenbrand, Professor Fred Donner, Bishop Richard Holloway and the late Professor David Kerr, as well as substantial excerpts from Professor Watt’s unpublished writings, copies of which he entrusted to Professor Hillenbrand.
