This is an extensive and critical review article of Mark & Maha El Kaisy-Friemuth, (ed.), al-Radd al-Jamil – A Fitting Refutation of the Divinity of Jesus Attributed to Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī. (Brill: Leiden, 2016). The discussion is flanked by investigative questions about language, text and history relating to the oeuvrre of Abu Hamid al-Ghazali. The article contributes to current discussions on the text in question, showing that the intellectual and spiritual identity of al-Radd remains most certainly authentic to Ghazālī’s teaching, unlike the editor’s conclusion, and those of other contemporary scholars, confirming that it would make sense to attribute it to him.
