The book surveys the 1400-year history of Islam in China and explores why the four books translated from Islamic languages into Chinese before the twentieth century were all Persian Sufi texts. The author also looks carefully at the two most important Muslim authors of books in the Chinese language, Wang Tai-yu and Liu Chih. Murata shows how they assimilated Confucian social teachings and Neo-Confucian metaphysics, as well as Buddhism and Taoism, into Islamic thought. She presents full translations of Wang's Great Learning of the Pure and Real--a text on the principles of Islam--and Liu Chih's Displaying the Concealment of the Real Realm, which in turn is a translation from Persian of Lawa'ih', a famous Sufi text by Jami.

    In reading these translations, it is clear that the ulama in China saw the "learning to be human" is the fundamental purpose of all Islamic teachings. What comes to mind throughout the reading of this book is what the Prophet (prayers, peace and blessings be upon him) says, "Seek knowledge, even unto China."In the modern world, we have forgotten how to be human. We consider such ancient wisdom to be 'outmoded' and 'outdated' even 'naive.' There is "Great Learning," to be done..on ourselves.
