5.0 out of 5 stars very instructional 24 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a believer in the one true God and read this book to find out about the differences between Islam and Christianity, my own religion. As a mature person I am glad to say that there are more similarities between our religions than differences. Thank you for the way you laid out the book and explained all of the various points.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book introducing Islam 4 Sep 2011
By Ali
Format:Paperback
This is a great book which introduces the religion very well. The writer knows the subject in depth and has a wonderful way of explaining things. The book is well laid out and covers all the bases. An enjoyable and essential read for anyone wanting to learn about Islam or thinking of converting to Islam.

I had zero knowledge of Islam a couple of weeks back, but then read two random books from the library before this one.

I think this book is so simply written that it's usefulness as an introduction is severely limited. It states in very easy English that something simply IS one way or another in Islam. These statements are only very loosely backed up by references to the big book or scholarly interpretation. I personally was expecting a much more diligent introduction and even from my very limited knowledge have identified a few topics where her statement aren't universally accepted at all (i'm pretty sure the big book never mentions Adams spouses name to be eve?)

In summary, get a more high brow book if you're interested.
