About the Author
Nevit Ergin is the original translator of the entirety of Rumi's 44,000 verses into English. Will Johnson is the founder and director of the Institute for Embodiment Training, which combines Western somatic psychotherapy with Eastern meditation practices. He is the author of several books, including the award-winning Rumi: Gazing at the Beloved.
"It takes a great deal of courage to read "The Forbidden Rumi "as it may press a lot of buttons, not only about your own pathway to God, but your views and prejudices about love, religion, heresy and Islam.
"All of Rumi's poems have enjoined us to release the rules and open our hearts to our inner treasure of love, but these most controversial poems cut to the bone.
"This final book of Rumi's poems is a must-read for any serious student of spiritual ecstasy. They pose questions that make us wonder and re-evaluate our views about a religion that is portrayed as governed by extremists. They reveal a hidden face of Islam that may surprise even moderate Islamists.
"Most importantly, these poems reveal that Islam too has always had a mystical, transcendent element that is its purest gift."--Lesley Crossingham, New Dawn, Mar-Apr 2007
