Marvels of the Heart is thought to be the key volume of the 40-book Ihya' 'Ulum-Al Din—Revival of the Religious Sciences—, the most read work in the Muslim world after the Qur’an, and considered by many to be the Summa Theologica of Islam. These traditional teaching stories, which use the theme of the heart as a mirror, illustrate key tenets of Islam on the requirements of religion, living in society, and the inner life of the soul.

Al-Ghazali was a theologian, a logician, a jurist, and a mystic. He was the author of more than 100 books of Islamic scholarship, and is regarded by many as the renewer of the fifth Muslim century. Walter James Skellie was a Presbyterian Minister who earned an M.A. and PhD in Arabic studies from the Hartford Seminary Foundation and served on missions in the Middle East for more than 25 years. T. J. Winter, also known as Abdal Hakim Murad, is currently the ShaZayed Lecturer of Islamic Studies at Cambridge University and the director of studies in theology at Wolfson College. Hamza Yusuf, founder of the Zaytuna Institute and the first American lecturer to teach in Morocco's prestigious and oldest University, the Karaouine in Fes, has translated into modern English several classical Arabic traditional texts and poems.
