1.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing PR exercise, 18 Mar 2010
This review is from: Introducing Islam (Paperback)
I was hoping this would be up to the impressive standard of other books in the series; the fact it was written by Muslims also interested me. I've read a lot of the Quran and Hadith(s) so I thought this book could give me a more holistic overview of Islam.

Unfortunately it's little more than a PR exercise verging on propaganda. Like most religious books the Quran contains a lot of rules and philosophies that are unacceptable to modern societies, none of this is mentioned in the book, in fact there are few specifics about the Quran at all.
The entire book is little more than an onslaught of platitudes by what I assume are starry-eyed devotes of the religion.

The book should have been entitled "I love Islam".
