Islam has influenced, and continues to influence, many cultures around the globe, shaping histories, cultures and civilizations. Sadly, most of us only receive a two-dimensional look at Islam, look that is often distorted by the brevity of the media sound-bite or by opinionated agenda.
Our intention with this book is to present Islam, its beliefs and teachings, as well as the history of those who follow it. It is not a comprehensive study, nor should it be seen as definitive. Rather it should be used as a stimulus for further detailed study.
