How Big Is Allah? was the first question I turned into a book. I know what a mind altering experience it is to ponder the size of space and thought it would be the perfect way to explain why we can't know how big God is. How Does Allah Look? was another question that lent itself perfectly to a discussion on nature and the many things we don't and can't know. The books teach children the limits of our understanding while also encouraging them to think big and bold and to reach far and high in their pursuit of knowledge.(less)
