This is a scholarly and yet intensely personal book written by a cradle Catholic who drifted away from the church in her teens and came back to it while at university, largely as a result of her interaction with Muslim students. To my surprise, it gave me almost as many insights into the Church of Rome (which I thought I already knew quite a lot about) as into Islam.

It has a Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur from the Roman Catholic Church, which means that it has been approved as true to the Church’s

I bought this book with the intention of better understanding the Muslim faith and, although I’m not Catholic, to learn what similarities exist between the two religions.

This book was a really well written introduction for me into how a Catholic can interact productively with Islam and Muslims. Also has a lot of references and information that can be used outside the book.

This is a well-structured and well-writ

An absolutely gorgeous theological and ethnographic analysis of the relationship between Catholicism and Islam. Every Catholic should be reading this book to truly understand the beauty of our shared Abrahamic roots.

Islamophobia runs rampant in the Catholic community and you couldn't find a better counterargument in Duffner's analysis.
