This is a multifarious survey of past and present of Islamic rationalism and an invaluable work as far as contemporary sense of classical Mutazilite rationalism is concerned. Authors have also contributed greatly to Islamic studies by introducing comparatively lesser known modern scholars like Harun Nasution and Hassan Hanafi. One can just hope that more works like this would tremendously help reviving the spirit of Kalam.
