Overview

No god but God: The Origins and Evolution of Islam by Reza Aslan


An invaluable introduction for young readers to a faith that for much of the West remains shrouded in ignorance and fear. Written by Reza Aslan, an internationally acclaimed scholar of comparative religion, No god but God examines Islam: its rituals and traditions, the revelation of Muhammad as Prophet and the subsequent uprising against him, and the emergence of his successors.

Engaging, accessible, and thought-provoking, No god but God is sure to stimulate discussion and encourage understanding of the Islamic faith and the people who follow it.

This is a version for adolescents, not the original version by the same name. I gave it a low rating because the promotion was misleading, not because of content.
