Have you heard that Allah's followers constitute the world's fastest-growing religion? That Muhammad was mankind's greatest and final prophet? That the Bible is unreliable and the Qur'an is God's ultimate revelation? In Burning Questions about Islam: A Panoramic Study for Concerned Christians, Wilbur Lingle tackles those claims. Here, in language everyone can understand, Lingle provides readers with a comprehensive survey of the history, beliefs, and fallacies of Islam. Using passages from the Qur'an and the Hadith, he provides information and details aimed at creating a better understanding of the beliefs and practices of the followers of Islam. He also gives readers practical suggestions on how to engage its followers with the truth of the Christian Gospel. Burning Questions about Islam gives readers the tools they need to witness to Muslims in an informed and non-confrontational manner.

In Islam Is a Foreign Country, Zareena Grewal explores some of the most pressing debates about and among American Muslims: what does it mean to be Muslim and American? Who has the authority to speak for Islam and to lead the stunningly diverse population of American Muslims? Do their ties to the larger Muslim world undermine their efforts to make Islam an American religion? Offering rich insights into these questions and more, Grewal follows the journeys of American Muslim youth who travel in global, underground Islamic networks. Devoutly religious and often politically disaffected, these young men and women are in search of a home for themselves and their tradition. Through their stories, Grewal captures the multiple directions of the global flows of people, practices, and ideas that connect U.S. mosques to the Muslim world. By examining the tension between American Muslims’ ambivalence toward the American mainstream and their desire to enter it, Grewal puts contemporary debates about Islam in the context of a long history of American racial and religious exclusions. Probing the competing obligations of American Muslims to the nation and to the umma (the global community of Muslim believers), Islam is a Foreign Country investigates the meaning of American citizenship and the place of Islam in a global age.

The concept of leadership in Islam varies greatly among Muslims. Arguably, the lack of consensus derives from deviations in the interpretation and application of Islamic texts in modern times as well as from pressures exerted by external forces. When the Islamic ethics of disagreement are not observed, the result is the disunion and weakness of the Muslim masses. Tackling this problem requires objective studies and well-prepared consultations. To that end, IGS (Islamic Guidance Society) and ICOJ (Islamic Circle of Japan) intended to make a modest contri-bution by organizing an international conference on Muslim leadership and unity in August 2001 in Kobe, Japan. This book contains the research papers, essays, and other works prepared for the conference. Arranged in 5 parts, the 12 chapters of the book combine general and applied works, some focusing on Japan. Rather than opening passionate discussions on the current leadership of the Muslim world, the compilation highlights the prerequisites for successful leadership while investigating the factors affecting Muslim unity. It provides useful information for Muslim scholars as well as leaders at all levels: familial, institutional, national, and international. Cover picture: The Great Faisal Mosque, Conakry, Guinea

Also available in paperback as "Modernist and Fundamentalist Debates in Islam"During the second half of the nineteenth century, a group of prominent Muslim theologians began to critically examine classical conceptions and methods of jurisprudence and devised a new approach to Islamic theology. This new approach was nothing short of an outright rebellion against Islamic orthodoxy, displaying an astonishing compatibility with nineteenth century Enlightenment-era thought. In the 20th century this modernist movement declined, to be replaced by another cultural episode, characterized by the growing power of Islamic fundamentalism. This volume looks at these two very different approaches to Islam. The editors have selected the most prominent Islamic thinkers of modernist and fundamentalist viewpoints, diverse nationalities, and from both the late decades of the nineteenth century and the early decades of the 20th century. The writers discuss their own views with regard to such issues as philosophical and political perceptions of democracy, the state, the history of Islam, women's rights, personal lifestyle, education, and the West.

**A New York Times Editor's Pick** **One of Time's Most Anticipated Books of 2017, a Bustle Best Nonfiction Pick for January 2017, a Chicago Review of Books Best Book to Read in January 2017, an Amazon Best of January 2017 in History, a Stylist Magazine Best Book of 2017, included in New Statesman's What to Read in 2017** From the Ambassador of the UAE to Russia comes Letters to a Young Muslim, a bold and intimate exploration of what it means to be a Muslim in the twenty-first century. In a series of personal letters to his son, Omar Saif Ghobash offers a short and highly readable manifesto that tackles our current global crisis with the training of an experienced diplomat and the personal responsibility of a father. Today’s young Muslims will be tomorrow’s leaders, and yet too many are vulnerable to extremist propaganda that seems omnipresent in our technological age. The burning question, Ghobash argues, is how moderate Muslims can unite to find a voice that is true to Islam while actively and productively engaging in the modern world. What does it mean to be a good Muslim? What is the concept of a good life? And is it acceptable to stand up and openly condemn those who take the Islamic faith and twist it to suit their own misguided political agendas? In taking a hard look at these seemingly simple questions, Ghobash encourages his son to face issues others insist are not relevant, not applicable, or may even be Islamophobic. These letters serve as a clear-eyed inspiration for the next generation of Muslims to understand how to be faithful to their religion and still navigate through the complexities of today’s world. They also reveal an intimate glimpse into a world many are unfamiliar with and offer to provide an understanding of the everyday struggles Muslims face around the globe.

Religion has played a major role in history, affecting the course of events and influencing individuals. Today one frequently hears the expression "the return of religion" but opinions differ as to how this "return" is to be understood. It is clear that modernity and postmodernity have not meant that religion is dead or relegated to society's backyards. Religion is still of vital importance for many people. It has, to some extent, changed shape but has not lost its legitimacy and attractiveness to broad groups. Religion is public, visible, and has a sought-for voice; but it is also wrestling with extremism, ignorance, and preconceptions. Just like ideologies, religions are capable of activating diametrically opposite traits in humans. It is this dual tension that is implicit in the question mark in this book's title: Mending the World? This book's aim is to help explore whether, how, and in what ways religion, church, and theology can contribute constructively to the future of a global society. In thirty-one chapters, researchers from around the world address the relation between religion and society.
