From the Publisher
In this invaluable introduction to a faith that for much of the
West remains shrouded in ignorance and fear, Reza Aslan, an
internationally acclaimed scholar of comparative religion, examines
Islam: its rituals and traditions, the revelation of Muhammad as
Prophet and the subsequent uprising against him, and the emergence
of his successors. Aslan's comprehensive text explores the complex
history of the fastest-growing religion in the world.
From the Hardcover edition.
No god but God is an engaging, accessible, and
thought-provoking book for young people that is sure to stimulate
discussion and encourage understanding of the Islamic faith and the
people who follow it.
