Chapter Four analyses a preaching style that contrasts with that analysed in Chapter Three. Shiddiq Amien (d. 2009) was the chairman of Persatuan Islam (The Islamic Association). Like Al-Jauhari, he was one of the most popular of Bandung’s preachers. His style was constrained in comparison to Al-Jauhari’s, reflecting an ideology of mediation expressed in authoritative statements written by a number of Persis ideologues. According to this ideology, listeners should be seriously engaged in acquiring Islamic knowledge, and the exercise of oratorical skill is unwelcome. This ideology corresponds with widely accepted conceptions of Indonesian citizenship subjectivity, giving Amien a more credible position in the Indonesian public sphere in comparison with Al-Jauhari.
