Details:  Understanding Islam and the Muslims - The Muslim Family, Islam and World Peace, 
Paperback - 99 pages + 190 Colour Photographs,
by Tim Winter and,
John A Williams.



Myths and misunderstanding continue to proliferate about Islam and its millions of followers worldwide. Through stunning photography provided by ARAMCO World and an accessible question and answer format this newly-expanded version of America’s most popular short introduction to the key precepts of Islam offers succinct, and sometimes surprising, answers to frequently asked questions about the Muslim faith.

 
Written by eminent scholars Dr. T.J. Winter, (Shaykh Abdul Hakim Murad) Lecturer in Islamic Studies at Cambridge University, and John A. Williams of the College of William and Mary’s Department of Religion, this new version of a classic work is unique in that it has the endorsement of Al Azhar University of Cairo, which has been the center of Islamic study for the entire Muslim world since 969 C.E. 


Review :

“Through its text and photographs, this book seeks to replace inaccurate images of Islam with recognition of the multi-faceted character of this global religion and its widely diverse adherents. It cannot be reduced to stereotypes. Islam is not inherently violent, nor are Muslims intrinsically prone to violence.” ----Bruce B. Lawrence, Professor of Islamic Studies, Duke University.
