Overview

Although relatively unknown in the West, Islam has been forcefully brought to the public’s attention by the acts and threats of the “Islamic terrorists.” As a result, the question is repeatedly asked: “What kind of religion is this?” Stoddart argues that in spite of appearances, Muslims are in fact allies with people of other faiths; they have common enemies and they are united in their opposition to all kinds of modern errors and immoralities, including materialism and secularism.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
What Does Islam Mean In Today's World? Religion, Politics, Spirituality argues that modern Christianity has nothing to fear from traditional Islam: the two religions have common enemies, concerns, and are united in their opposition to immoralities such as materialism. The general public tends to associate Islam with terrorism: this book considers its underlying connections to Christian beliefs and examines Islam's role in modern societies. Chapters include surveys of art and culture as they discuss modern religious bias in a pick recommended for any spirituality and Middle East cultural collection.
