5.0 out of 5 stars A vitally important book in understanding Islam, January 29, 2013
This review is from: No god but God (Updated Edition): The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam (Paperback)
In a world where there are so many misleading books on Islam, both by Muslim and non-Muslim scholars, this book is a vitally important book. It is fair, balanced and critically detailed, with seemingly endless list of credible references. The author's deep understanding on other religions is also applauding, while the stories on the origins and evolution of Islam have finally given me the complete picture of my own religion.

Indeed, Reza Aslan seems to have read it all, from one extreme interpretation to the other, from the polytheist pre-Arabian era to the current state of monotheistic religions in the world. All of this, wrapped in a beautifully written language, and with flair of excellent writing skills.
