No God But God: The Origins, Evolution and Future of Islam (Paperback)Reza Aslan (author)
- In stock
*Ten years on from 9/11, much of the Muslim faith remains largely unknown and misunderstood in the West.
*While there have been a number of successful books on the topic of Islamic history - from Karen Armstrong's Islam: A Brief History to Bernard Lewis's The Crises of Islam - there is surprisingly no book for a popular audience about Islam as a religion, let alone one by an author from an Islamic background.
*No God But God fills that gap, addressing issues of belief: the difference between the Quran and the Bible, the meaning of the Hajj, the Muslim relationship with Jesus, the Muslim attitude towards Jews, equality between the sexes and more.
* This revised and updated edition includes a wealth of new material and new chapters covering recent uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya; the changing face of Islam in Europe and North Africa; and a number of topics of heated debate (the veil controversy; Islam & women; Iraq War as a Jihadi recruiting agent etc).

A lot of the information here has no basis, the writer is not knowledgeable in Islamic History, but the History of the New Testament, he should learn more about Islamic History and then write again.
