BOOK TITLE: Bestower Of Light

AUTHOR:  Jeffry Rothschild:

BOOK REVIEW:  This book vividly recreates the life of Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, Bestower of Light and presents an intimate portrait of a contemporary Sufi master dealing with the complexities of life in the twentieth century.  This book touches on every aspect of Dr. Nurbakhsh’s life in the Middle East, to a revealing interview with the master on a wide range of subjects, a number of subjects never discussed by Dr. Nubakhsh before. Also included is a number of re-translated and updated poems from the master’s collection of poetry.  This book shows much depth on behalf of the author, Jeffry Rothschild, who became good friends with Dr. Nurbakhsh, when, in later years, Dr. Nurbakhsh brought the Sufi religion over to the West to understand.  Most people are not familiar with Sufism, and would be amazed at how unique Dr. Nurbakhsh was.   A MUST READ!! Offers extraordinary insight on the full life of Dr Nubakhsh not only as a Sufi master, but as a friend.
