This review is from: Islam the Natural Way 2nd Edition (Paperback)
This is a clear and unhurried explanation of the basic beliefs and practices of Islam. Given that much of what people criticise in Islam is actually 'cultural baggage', and not derived from Islamic texts, this book is a good enlightening introduction for those who are genuinely interested in learning about Islam (as opposed to 'gathering ammunition' to use in polemical debate!). It does not touch on the more mystical aspects, inner or hidden meanings of Islamic texts etc, so if you are interested in Sufism and mysticism, this is not for you, but it's a good primer.
