Description from the publisher:
Addressed to Muslims in western societies and to non-Muslims interested in learning about the religion, this portrait of contemporary Islam uses simple terms to show how Islam crosses boundaries of language and culture. Arguing that it has relevant answers for problems in industrial societies, the book describes the moral code of the Qur'an as humane and rational and emphasizes the historical bridges that connect Islam to Judaism and Christianity. For practicing Muslims, the book advises on how best to navigate western culture without compromising traditional values.
