Muslim Citizens of the Globalized World: Contributions of the Gülen Movement explores the response and contributions of Muslims in general and Turkish Muslims in particular to the waves of democratization, scientific revolution, changing gender roles, and religious diversity in an increasingly globalized world. The book explores the thought of Fethullah Gülen, Turkish Muslim scholar, author and education activist, known by some as "a modern-day Rumi", and his impact on the millions of participants in a social phenomenon called the Gülen movement. Originating in Turkey but becoming increasingly transnational, the movement represents novel approaches to the synthesis of faith and reason, peaceful co-existence in liberal democracies with religious diversity, education and spirituality.
