I went to Badan Cemerlang bookstore at Plaza Angsana JB a few days ago, after sending my wife to work. Loitered around and didn’t see any English books. Most of the books I saw at Badan are Bahasa Melayu books mostly published by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP). I even came across a book authored by someone I knew, hmmm….
I inquired about Interlok at the front desk but they told me they didn’t have it. So I wandered off again to the DBP section. By chance, I stumbled across the book Muslim and Christian Ethics by Mohd. Nasir Omar. It was published by DBP and in English, too! I remember seeing this book at Kinokuniya (and they were selling it for RM35), so imagine my surprise when I took it to the counter and found out that I only had to pay RM16 for it!
So here is yet another proud acquisition, for yours truly’s library of comparative religion works. I am starting to read the book and I will give a review of it in due time. Still taking my time in finishing it, however, as I have many things going on at the moment.
