Read in January, 2006

A great read, comprehensive and complex. Avoids buzz words and stereotypes to uncover Islam as a system of belief, not a political identity. It details Islam from an ideological perspective without making any assumptions about the reader. Since the book was written by two scholars with experience teaching Islam as an academic subject, it has a textbook quality. Admittedly, it becomes very detailed and philosophical at times, but is divided up into very specific and readable sections. Overall, a great insight into the depths of Islamic faith and belief, and a beautiful vision of what Islam is at its core.
