Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Islam is the world's second largest religion and arguably it's least understood. Jabbour, who was born in Syria and educated at the American University of Beirut (BA) and the University of South Africa in Pretoria, where he wrote his dissertation on Islamic fundamentalism in Egypt, believes his life and work experiences offer him unique insights into both the Islamic world and American life. With objectivity, the author outlines the tenets of Islam, addressing the issues of compassion and understanding between faiths. He attempts to answer the questions, "What do Muslim people believe?" "Is Islam evil?" and "Why is America a lightning rod for the anger of many Muslim fundamentalists?" Jabbour makes distinctions between the Muslim people and the Islamic sect of fanaticism. His earlier book, The Rumbling Volcano, was praised by critics because he was "close to being an `insider' as is possible without actually being a Muslim." The praise holds true for The Many Faces of Islam as well. Recommended. Pam Kingsbury, Florence, AL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
