Islam: A Brief Look at Faith and History is published by Light Upon Light for Americans who have a new interest in this ancient religion of the Near East.
Many books about Islam by Muslims are tools for proselytizing—meant to encourage the reader to become a Muslim. This book takes a much different purpose: To explain the multi-dimensionality of Islam as a path of enlightenment among many.
More importantly, Islam—as a religion practiced worldwide—has a diverse and deep history. This history demonstrates how Islam has shaped humanity.
This special book makes the perfect gift for friends, neighbors or just fellow Muslims who want to know a little more about the depth and breadth of their own religion. It contains useful Quranic references, a glossary and recommended reading.
