I thought it was absolutely necessary to learn about Islam. Not only because I have a serious relationship with a Muslim man, but because I have struggled to find understanding with my own Abrahamic religious belief. This book discusses Islam, Christianity, and Judaism, often comparing and contrasting among each. I loved it and I have a new respect and love for Islam.

This book offers an educational, friendly introduction into Islam. I like how the author encourages reader interaction with the text. This book is a must for anybody interested in learning more about one of the three Abrahamic religions.
