Editorial Reviews

Review

“Imam Feisal…is an inspirational and erudite exponent for the Muslim world. This tale of his journey is a clarion call for a progressive and pluralistic Islam as a bedrock of tolerance and understanding Believers and adherents of all faiths must stand in solidarity with this global spiritual leader whose cry for religious freedom and human dignity must be heard.” —Rabbi Marc Schneier (President) and Russell Simmons (Chairman), The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding

"In this thoughtful book, Imam Feisal explores the need to create an American Muslim community that fits in with the nation's traditions of pluralism and tolerance… an important contribution to understanding Islam and the struggle against extremism." —Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of Steve Jobs and President, the Aspen Institute

“Inspiring, honest, and insightful, Moving the Mountain crosses the bridge from East to West and demonstrates the vital role that Muslims can play in strengthening the voice of religious moderation across the world. Imam Feisal eloquently reminds us that women’s rights, religious harmony, and equality are core values embedded in Islam, and he challenges us to embrace that mandate today.”—Her Majesty Queen Noor Al Hussein of Jordan

“Imam Feisal is an ideal ambassador: an immigrant to America, a defender of its principles, and a believer that people of diverse backgrounds and faiths can thrive within its borders. Here, he has put his gift of storytelling in service of the empathy that all of us -- Muslims and non-Muslims alike -- so desperately need.”—Arianna Huffington

"Feisal Abdul Rauf is a name that one day should come as easily to the lips as do the names of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi. It is my hope that when my fellow Americans read this incredibly moving and enlightening book they will feel the scales of ignorance and fear falling off their eyes. With gentleness and love, [Imam Feisal] seeks to bring us all together in post-9/11 America."  ­—Michael Moore

“Everybody should read this book. It shows us the dangers of our past course and where we should be aiming.” –Karen Armstrong, bestselling author of Islam: A Short History and Muhammad, A Prophet for Our Time 

"An authentic voice, an essential vision, a heartfelt story. Moving the Mountain can - and should -  move America." —James Carroll, bestselling author of Constantine’s Sword and Jerusalem, Jerusalem

“An erudite and insightful look into the future of Islam and America, identifying those values that could bridge differences between Muslims, Christians and Jews. A book about how religion can bring people together, heal wounds, and show a future of hope and coexistence.” —Vali Nasr, bestselling author of The Shia Revival and The Rise of Islamic Capitalism



"Imam Feisal is arguably the most influential Muslim leader in America. His bold vision of a moderate, pluralistic, and distinctly American Islam is something that all Americans should champion." —Reza Aslan, bestselling author of No god but God and Beyond Fundamentalism 



"Moving The Mountain is wise, authentic, and courageous. Every American needs to read this transforming and spiritually insightful book about the profound hope American Islam offers the world." —Rabbi Irwin Kula, President of The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership

“Imam Feisal personifies the most noble and sublime teachings of Islam that seek to advance the wellbeing, happiness, and flourishing of all people. At a time when religion is tragically and violently hijacked by those who desecrate its name, the need to hearken to his articulate voice is greater than ever.” —Rabbi David Rosen, Interfaith Advisor to the Chief Rabbinate of Israel

This is a wonderful book - well written, easy to read and full of information that helps to give insights into the Islamic religion and Muslim people - particularly Americans.
Imam Feisal has a deep understanding of other religions, Christianity and Judaism in particular and frequently presents information in a comparative framework which makes it much easier to understand. Reading it there were a lot of "aha!" moments.
I would whole heartedly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand our world better.

Moving The Mountain is an excellent explanation of Moderate Islam wriitten by the man who is at the forefront of the attempt to build a Islamic Center (NOT a Mosque), near Ground Zero in N.Y. city. He has done a superb job of explaining Islam to the non-Muslim and appears to be exactly who he purports himself to be, a man who wants to erase the ugliness among religions. I wish it were "required" reading for every American Citizen'

Imam Feisal Rauf has paintakingly explained the fundamental tenets of Islam and the tone and basic message of the Quran. He stresses that moderate Jews, Christians, and even atheists have much in common with moderate Muslims, and all of these groups have little in common with extremists of any faith. He suggests our joint efforts based on concern for our fellow human beings could yield a pathway to peace.

Imam Feisal is the epitome of moderate muslims in America - regular law abiding citizens, pursuing life, liberty & happiness. MTM gives a great insight into the life of the Imam and his commitment to making this world a better place.
It helps develop a spiritual understanding of modern Islam along with an action plan to initiate multi-faith dialogue and change.
It is a must read book for anyone who believes in the goodness of human kind, and refuses to stereotype or accept, that a small minorities cruel acts could ever represent the views of 1/4th the world's population!

Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf issues a persuasive call to all of us who desire an orderly, peaceful world to consider the vision of Moslems, Christians, Jews,and others,living in harmony. Impossible? He thinks it isn't. And after you've read his book, you may consider it possible, too.
