Format: Paperback
This book provides a useful and illuminating overview of Islam. Clear and sympathetic treatment of topics such as the Koran and the prophet offer a guided tour of the religion's principles, history and possible directions. Necessarily brief and descriptive, it covers the main branches and tributaries of the movement, while still retaining focus sufficiently to throw up many morsels of the 'did you know that?' type of information. It is always scrupulously balanced and considered in its observations. However, it lacks depth and, perhaps more seriously, with the second (and final) edition coming out in 1956 (though it was republished in 1990), is rather dated. Nevertheless, it is beautifully written, by a man who clearly felt a deep sense of empathy with Islam, and would provide the interested layman with a good grounding in this fascinating religion. A good starting point.
