Description from the publisher: Who are we to trust for a clear picture of Islam? Many people would suggest that a Muslim might not be the best candidate for the job. To an extent this is true. Already I have read too many expositions on islam that throw Qur’anic chapters and verses at the reader, but lists of quotes do not make informative books. And these quotes rarely highlight th emajesty and nuance of the Qur’an, rather for every basic in Islam another extensive quote is hammered upon the reater by a writer trying to find the best way to offend neither his audience nor his co-religionists. These book clearly show a lack of coinfident in art of commentary. The first tenet of such an art should be the linking of tradition to matters that concern us here and now.
