How can Islam reconcile itself with the 21st century? This No-Nonsense Guide explains the Islamic worldview, examining the Qur'an and Islamic law (sharia), Islam in history, and Islam's relationship with the West. The authors analyze the struggle within the faith for a more humane and holistic interpretation of their religion, and examine issues surrounding women's rights, economic development and democracy.
This is a balanced portrayal of 'real Islam', looking beyond common perceptions and polemical debates. It show what Islam has achieved and shows why a better understanding of Muslims is needed throughout the world. But it also explains why Islam needs to make itself more relevant by showing it can create a just, tolerant and peaceful society.
