On Faith, Rationality, and the Other in the Late Middle Ages:
A Study of Nicholas of Cusa's Manuductive Approach to Islam
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This book is a gem. Those who already love the Middle Ages are in for a treat . . . Those less familiar with the Middle Ages will learn enormously. If Europe has a problem to wrestle with, it is not how to sustain her wealth and prestige, but how to think about, and live properly, her contacts with Islam. As Bakos demonstrates, Nicholas of Cusa may have lived long ago, but he is no mean guide for the times."

"This book dispels the default position that Cusanus would have forced the Christian agenda down upon everyone else. It turns out, rather, that the main subject of the manuductio is the pious believer himself. As long as religion faces the absolute, this absolute faces every human being."
--From the Foreword by Paul Richard Blum
