Leading authorities discuss the past, present and future of Islam.
Islam, the least understood of the worlds great religions, is balanced on a precipice between the past and the future, between fanatical fundamentalists and progressives advocating peace. Noted Islamic authority Michael Wolfe moderates 35 expert speakers, writers and leaders, including Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) and Karen Armstrong, the best-selling author of A History of God and Islam. They discuss the future of Islam, tear down false stereotypes, review the historical realities that have shaped the religion, and examine paradoxes and schisms within the faith.Â
At a time when every Muslim is forced to defend his faith and Americans are curious about Islams basic tenets, this book answers many questions at the same time that it ponders both the danger and promise of the future.
