Although this book presents complex religious, cultural, traditional, and philosophical ideas, it is written in a way that can be easily understood by a common layman. What's nice is that Mr. Ramadan presents principles and ideas from various cultures and regions. In short, it is a universal book!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent work which shows how important our respect for ALL ways results in growth and meaning. Opening our windows and venturing beyond our own tightly held "beliefs" strengthens our ties to one another. A great study--not easy, but worth the effort!
